Big Bear Hiking Trails

Hit the ground walking this spring as the snow begins to melt and the trails start to open up in Big Bear, CA. Many of the trails open as the snow begins to melt and the trail becomes accessible, and by June 1 most are open. The San Gorgonio mountains in the San Bernardino forest are some of the most spectacular views, and still just 2.5 hours from Los Angeles... including the drive up the hill. The trails are rated in easy, moderate, difficult scales, and free trail maps, showing the sites are available at the Discovery Center on the northside of Big Bear Lake, or the visitors welcome center. Fresh air... come get some.

Big Bear vacations are fun when you can get outside and enjoy the outdoors of the San Bernardino forest. The visitors center in the middle of the Big Bear village will be able to help you with hiking and biking maps to make your vacation fun. We have a few of our favorite trails outlined on our hiking pages, but you'll want to just start here and then go exploring on your own. Big Bear hikes are good anytime of the day, but sunset is one of the most beautiful as you can see the sun set on the ocean as you look out over the basin of Los Angeles.
