Re: SoCalFest Big Bear 2006 - Event Information

Camping info:
UPDATE!!

Please make reservations through the KIOSK. If you have made the reservations through reserve USA call the KIOSK and have them move to next to the group.
The Ph# to the Kiosk is 909 866 8021 you will talk to Mike or Liz. If no answer leave a message of the who you are and the dates you want to reserve. Phone call and reservations can be made all weekend and should be made with the campground itself. But hurry the spot are starting to fill up as there are only two loops open in the campground.

Make sure you let the rangers know you are with and there for the trail maint. and they will find you the appropriate place to camp with the group.

Re: SoCalFest Big Bear 2006 - Event Information

Meeting Points, Maps, & Directions

Friday, trail maintenance:

We will be meeting at the Big Bear Ranger Station at 9.00. The Ranger station is just East of the Big Bear Discovery Center on Highway 38 (North Shore Drive) approximately one mile west of the Standfield cutoff.


Saturday & Sunday, fun stuff:
We will meet at 9.00 am at the Big Bear Discovery Center on Highway 38 (North Shore Drive) just over a mile West of the Standfield cutoff.

Saturday night dinner / raffle:
Serrano Campgrounds is on Highway 38 (North Shore Drive) just over a mile West of the Stanfield Cutoff.

Maps:
Serrano, Discovery Center, and Ranger Station:


Overview:


If you are showing up on Friday after 9.00 you can go directly to 2N04 only if you feel comfortable doing so. I would encourage you to do this only if you are know the Big Bear area.

The turn off for 2N04 is approxmately 4.8 miles South East of the Big Bear City Limits on Highway 38, this turn off is very easy to miss. If you are coming closer to noon I would suggest going to 2N01 (the next turn off South East of 2N04) and then going down 2N04.

Map:


Our primary CB channel for Friday will be 4, if that is unavailable we will be on 14.

GPS waypoints of interest:
2N04 & Hwy. 38 Junction: 34° 13.189'N 116° 45.472'W
2N04 & 2N01 Junction: 34° 13.385'N 116° 43.550'W
2N01 & Hwy. 38 Junction: 34° 12.444'N 116° 44.285'W
B.B. Discovery Center: 34° 15.772'N 116°54.359'W
B.B. Ranger Station: 34° 15.776'N 116° 54.055'W
