The Champion Lodgepole Pine Trailhead is located on the south side of Big Bear Lake. From Hwy 18, turn south on Mill
Creek Road which turns into Forest Road 2N10. Forest Service Road 2N10 is a dirt fire road. When driving Forest Service
fire/dirt roads, caution should be taken for uneven road surfaces, rocks and dips, high clearance vehicles are recommended.

Continue on FS Road 2N10 for 4.5 miles, turn right on 2N11 and continue for 1 mile to the trailhead. Then it’s a gentle walk down a path along a small stream for 0.3 of a mile. The trail ends at the Champion Lodgepole Pine, one of the largest known Lodgepole pines in California. Adjacent to the Champion Lodgepole Pine is a beautiful meadow, a tapestry of wildflowers in the spring. (So please stay on the trails.) A companion path is the Bluff Mesa Trail (No Bicycles) which begins where the Champion Lodgepole Pine Trail ends, and travels in a northerly direction for 0.4 of a mile, ending at the popular Bluff Mesa Group Camp. This continuation trail is easy and recommended for families who would like a leisurely walk through beautiful stands of stately Jeffrey Pine. These two trails are accessible when Forest Service Roads 2N10 and 2N11 are open to motorized vehicles.
