Mottino Wash

Hidden off Rattlesnake Canyon, where the mountains of Big Bear meet the desert of Johnson Valley, you will find this rough, rocky trail known as Mottino Wash. Crumbling canyon walls fill Mottino Wash with sharp, jagged rocks and some incredibly unique terrain. At just under 2 miles long, allow yourself 1-2 hours to complete this trail.
