About Big Bear Jeep Jamboree

Here’s what the organizers have to say about the jamboree:

Take a trip back in time and become part of California’s Wild West. Travel far from pavement along mining and logging trails used in the gold rush era, 165 years ago. You’ll enjoy rock-and-boulder-strewn trails with great views overlooking Big Bear Lake. You’ll cross streams where miners used to pan for gold and traverse over to the mountain’s edge for breathtaking views of California’s High Desert.

Jeep Jamborees are off-road adventure weekends that bring together the outdoors, down-to-earth people, and their Jeep 4x4s. These off-road treks have a long tradition dating back to 1953 when 4×4 pioneer Mark A. Smith organized the first-ever Jeep Jamboree and voyaged across the Sierra Nevada Mountains by way of the old Rubicon Trail. In 1954, Willys Motors — then manufacturer of Jeep vehicles became involved with the adventure, and Jeep Jamborees have been an off-road tradition ever since.
