The Nature Discovery Trail is a 0.5 mile loop trail that gently winds its way through the forest behind the Big Bear Discovery Center. The trail is complete with 3 benches to stop and take in the fresh air along with peekaboo views of Big Bear Lake and Mt. San Gorgonio. Opened in spring 2013, future plans include the addition of interpretive signs to educate visitors about the natural history of the area.
