“A fun trail that is short but provides great views.”— Daniel Lammers
Family Friendly While the route might be a bit long for younger kids, older kids will enjoy getting out of the car and onto this trail.
Being a loop, it can be done in either direction. Going clockwise from the parking lot does have a steeper climb as the elevation is gained in less than 0.5 miles. The steeper parts of the trail have rock steps built in and are well-made, although shorter visitors will notice some are a bit high.
This leads to a nice overlook of the surrounding area and a view of the peaks in Big Bear. The western part of the trail is more gradual in the elevation. The trail also has numerous benches to sit and enjoy the views (or take a rest). This route is rated as intermediate due to the quickness of the elevation changes.
