Hi Folks

Just wanted to pass this on to you in case you are planning on going up to our adopted trail Tip Top ( 2N90) or in the vicinity of the Rose Mine. Ranger Greg Hoffman sent out the e mail below in reference to a new owner at the Rose Mine. Please read both e mails.

Pathfinder

Hi Terry, thank you for the report.

Rick is the new owner of Rose Mine. You might have noticed the amount of personal property resting on the mine tailing located to the east, mid-slope. This includes a large couch, four burner gas BBQ and an assortment of carefully placed, colorful figurines.

Rick is easily agitated and a strange guy. At Rose Mine, Rick envisions building a full-sized replica of Noah's Ark, an 18 hole PGA golf course and of course, resurrecting the town of Rose Mine that Rick has seen himself spelunking beneath 2N02 (geez!).

There were two 'No Trespassing' signs along 2N02 attached to mature pinon pines that faced to the west (last week).

The mine shaft Rick is living in (off and on) is located very close to the National Forest Boundary. I'm seeking out some direction on how to proceed (is Rick squatting on public lands?).

Be aware, the lower area (red mounds of hematite) is private property (an old homestead) that was acquired recently by Rick.

Therefore, it should be respected as such.

Thanks again,

Greg.

Hi Greg,
Last Tuesday I lead a group over 2N04 to 2N01 to 2N02.

We stopped at tie Rose Mine for lunch. We were confronted by a guy named Rick. It looks like he was camped on the ridge above the mine. But when we stopped and had gotten our stuff out, he started to make noises like a siren and made all sorts of unintelligible statements, something about we were on private land. I guess he didn't get a reaction so he walked down. He was armed (I'm assuming a .22 rifle) had a belt with a dime store sheriff's badge and some kind of gardening tool in a holster. He claimed that he owned the entire east side of 2N02 and that we were trespassing. But if we had a beer we could stay for a while.

I really don't think we were in any danger because of the way we responded to him. But I am concerned that someone else with a different reaction could have had a different result.

I figured that you would know the state of that area. And if it truly is private property then it should be properly posted which it was not.

Thanks,
Terry Lindgren SoCalx@sbcglobal.net

Big Bear 4 Wheel Drive Tour. Big Bear Lake California. July 28th 2013. San Bernardino National Forest. Ranger Greg takes a few volunteers from the Adopt-a-Trail Group on an interpretive tour of the 4x4 trails in Big Bear California. We meet at the Discovery Center at 8:15 am and the tour starts there. We head up Polique Canyon Road to Holcomb Valley. Greg talks about the past and recent history of the area - the Native American Tribes - The original Grizzlies that inhabited the area - the miners, ranchers, and the Pioneers etc. We make a stop at the Hangman's Tree. After they would hang the people on the branches, the branches would be cut. We head over to the Arctic Canyon area and views of Lucerne Valley and Cougar Buttes. From there we head over to White Mountain 4x4 Trail. We go up and over to Windy Point for Lunch. We head down to Coyote Flat and then meander our way through maze of huge granite boulders and buttresses west of the Grapevine Canyon area. We pick up trash along the way. We head back out toward Holcomb Creek and then out through Fawnskin to end the day. Thanks to Greg for leading the trek.
