Glory Ridge Trail is a 1.8 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Big Bear City, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from April until November.
One of the trails in Big Bear. This is the trail at the end of Glory Ridge Rd and descends to Bear Creek.
When I did this trail I parked where the dirt road started. I ended up doing about 12-14 miles expecting only a difficult 2 mile hike... Trees had fallen and it is a very steep decline down and incline up. I took a dip into the river once I got down and it seemed very satisfying. Next time I will bring my poles when the fish are running.
I hiked it last month. 4/10/16
