This asphalt path meanders along the sparkling north shore of Big Bear Lake from Stanfield Cutoff to the Solar Observatory and Serrano Campground. Although not flat by any means, its’ ups and downs are fairly gentle. In the fall of 1998 the path was extended and includes a pedestrian tunnel under Hwy 38 to the Cougar Crest Trail parking lot. The new extension continues east 0.6 of a mile and connects with the Big Bear Discovery Center.
Hikers can find water, restrooms and expert advice on all varieties of recreation in the San Bernardino National Forest at the Discovery Center. Seasonal parking is also available at Juniper Point Picnic Area and Meadow’s Edge Picnic Area with an Adventure Pass or Interagency Pass.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
