Trying to figure out the name and location of a supposedly new rock-crawling trail up in Big Bear (Not John-Bull)?  Any of you have intel on it?  I've heard about it from a couple serious off-road folk but don't remember who I was talking with.  The only think I know is that it's supposedly at the same difficultly level as the Rubicon, just a whole lot shorter.

Any help would be appreciated.

If I remember correctly, my sources said it opened up about a year or two ago?

The newest one I've heard of is Motino Wash (or Mottino).  Steevo's mentioned it in posts here.  There might be a thread on it.

Yeah good ol mottino wash... this trail is very loosely documented and kept on the DL.
It starts on BLM land ending on forestry service property making it questionably legal.
It's a spur off of rattle snake canyon.

SteevO, you're probably the person who told me about this trail now that I think about it :-).  I like the pictures.  Got any other resources for trail info on it?  You've got me curious about this trail.

There are a couple bad maps floating around on the web I'll have to dig them up and decipher them for you.
