Lake Views, Interpretive Signs and Brochures, Well-Maintained Trail The Woodland Trail provides an excellent introduction to and explanation of the flora indigenous to Big Bear Lake. An informative interpretive guide is provided at the trailhead, with descriptions corresponding to the twenty numbered signs along the trail. Differences between Western Juniper and Incense Cedar are explained, and a number of very common plants discovered at this altitude are identified. The approximately one-and-one half mile loop features mildly steep sections along a well-maintained trail, making this hike is an appropriate warm-up hike for "flatlanders" adjusting to the mountain altitude prior to treks along the Cougar Crest or Gray's Peak trails located nearby, and spectacular lake views existing near the loop's completion provide an enjoyable experience for hikers of nearly every level of ability.
Easy going trail. Good scenery. No lake view but very nice walk.
Very easy. Beautiful forest and views of the lake.
really enjoyed this trail. it was short, but my kids enjoyed climbing and running on everything.. it was a great way to start the morning on our vacation in big bear!
Lovely trail and views. Perfect after-breakfast hike. Unfortunately we ran into Ranger Sunshine who was all full of attitude about the parking (Adventure Pass needed or park out on the road). Shame on him for darkening our otherwise beautiful morning.
Great Trail for kids!
