Clark's Grade in Big Bear is also known as 1N54. This trail runs from Highway 38 up towards Big Bear Lake. It meets Skyline Drive at the top of the mountain.

The Forest Service closes this trail in the winter. Top of the trail is smooth and easy but starts to get narrow with some decent size rocks and ruts towards the middle and 500 foot sheer drop offs. 4 wheel low is mandatory for this trail and may be difficult in a couple sections for stock vehicles but could be done (use buddy system).
