A short (1 mile) but steep hike on a beautiful boldery trail, Well marked and traveled. Your destination is a vast scenic view overlooking Big Bear Lake almost like a helicopter view. A steep climb up huge bolders to a large flat bolder mesa. The best!

We went hiking with our 2 little boys. It was steep in places and loose rocks would make us slide down hill. There are a lot of hikers so it's very crowded. It's not a very difficult trail though if you take your time and rest. The view at the top is nice.

This is a great little hike!
Just a short distance out of town, maybe 15 minutes from The Village.

Nice and short, if you hike or exercise at all, this will be no problem for you (though you may feel the elevation). We saw people of all ages on this trail and families with small children.

Now.... the rock at the end though, not everyone is going to be able to climb that. But if you're fit, adventurous or into climbing, go for it. The view is worth it. :-)

The trail is not too long, but it is steep.
Once on the top you can climb up the Hugh boulder rock, and enjoy the best view ever!!
