Trail shared by Alper Akyürek

This trail leads to Grand View Point, where there are great lake and mountain views at the end.

Family Friendly Really nice views, bird songs, and not very hard terrain make this trail great for youngsters. We were able to carry our daughter over the tougher spots, and she loved it.

Description

This route is one of the nicer trails in the Big Bear Lake area. It starts from a campground and picnic area that is accessible with your car and ends at the Grand View Point overlooking the mountains and the forest. Along the way, you'll be able to get very nice overlooks over the lake itself. Towards the end, there is a small camping area (no water). The path is mostly dirt road. Look out for snakes and bears.

Great trail, good shade, not too steep. Slightly crowded but that’s to be expected for a holiday weekend. Would do again.
