Wildhorse Meadows is an easy trail for stock vehicles.  It does reach an elevation of 8700 feet, so weather conditions can quickly change, and snow is common in winter.  The route starts near Highway 38 a short distance south of the Erwin Ranch Area (it can also be reached from Big Bear through Moonridge and Sand Canyon Road).  After a long climb up a shoulder of Sugarloaf mountain, the route passes through a saddle and descends into picturesque Wildhorse Meadows.  From there it emerges overlooking the Santa Ana River drainage with great views of Mount San Gorgonio and Ten Thousand Foot Ridge in the distance.  The trail ends at Highway 38 near Hart Bar Campground.
