Whitewater Trail House | Ziggy & The Bear Has Closed.

Ziggy & The Bear

I’m sorry to relay that Ziggy & The Bear have moved and posted a new mailing address for postcards.
They also posted this to their site:

Please do not visit the house or trouble the neighbors.

There should be faucet water where the trail hits Snow Canyon Rd (mile 205.7) if the Water District hasn’t grown tired of hiker litter and vandalization.

There should also be water from the traditionally hiker-friendly folks at Mesa Wind Farm just off the trail (mile 213.4).

Not much to see here in San Gorgonio Pass except sand and windmills. Transportation along I-10 is not only tricky but often unsafe. We recommend hiking straight through from Idyllwild to Big Bear City (74 miles)… that said, HYOH!

HikerBot is a crowd-sourced guidebook and navigation app for long-distance hikers that fully works even in airplane mode.
Why HikerBot?
A variety of trail data sources exists whether in paper form or on-line. However, trail data ages quickly and becomes obsolete. HikerBot is designed to be the most up-to-date data source – since anyone can submit new data and make edits, right from the trail! These updates are propagated to other users immediately (when there is cell or wifi signal), or queued until a connection is available. Latest reports on water sources, snow conditions, restaurant reviews, photos, anything you’d want to know from hikers ahead … are all automatically synced to your phone.
What can you do with HikerBot?
– Download high-resolution USGS topo maps.
– Latest GPS trail tracks and waypoints are synced automatically.
– Navigate using a moving map.
– You can update waypoint names, coordinates, descriptions, add photos and field reports, all in airplane mode.
– You can rate photos and comments – highest rated content automatically surfaces to the top.
– If you choose, automatically share your location with other hikers (once an hour to once a day), with an optional time delay (an hour to one day) and random position error (up to a mile). Let others follow your hike but keep your privacy on the trail!
– See a real-time feed of all activity in the app

The following trails are supported: Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), Appalachian Trail (AT), Continental Divide Trail (CDT), John Muir Trail (JMT), Sierra High Route (SHR), Wonderland Trail (WT), Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (GDMBR), Continental Divide Singletrack Trail (CDST).
