Adventure Season

adventure season


Adventure Season has arrived at Big Bear Lake!


Big Bear Lake in Southern California is a mountain lake escape brimming with adventure. Outdoor nature lovers and thrill seekers alike can enjoy Big Bear’s long lake and mountainous terrain all spring and summer long! Put adventure skills to the test in multiple ways:

Hikers can challenge themselves to the five peaks of Big Bear by conquering Gold Mountain, Grey’s Peak, Bertha Peak, Delamar Mountain and Sugarloaf Mountain.

Test off-road trekking skills with three of the Jeep Badge of Honor trails, including John Bull Trail, Gold Mountain and Holcomb Creek (those looking for a scenic cruise can check out Gold Fever and Skyline Trails.)

Ride down the mountain on a bike as Snow Summit turns into a mountain-biking resort during the summer, or head to the north shore and hop on the Gray’s Peak Trail and connect to Holcomb Valley.

Not every adventure needs to be a physical challenge. Families can have fun “conquering” ziplines, slides and Go-Karts. Or have an educational adventure discovering history while panning for gold, learning about alpine critters up close at a zoo, embarking on an eco-tour from the Big Bear Discovery Center.

Planning any adventure is half the fun. Be sure to pack warm clothes, comfy shoes and a good camera. Big Bear’s high altitude is another element to factor, so bring lots of water and sunscreen.
