Did this trail over the weekend and it was fun. Starting from the 74 side, the first quarter of the trail was simple dirt roads. A bit sad to see all the trash laying around from every one that goes there to shoot, but stick with it and you will be rewarded. At the first real fork in the road you turn right and start going up hill quickly, this is where it starts to be fun. Although slightly more challenging, still pretty basic for a 4x4 with a bit of clearance. Eventually you'll get into the trees and this is where the real beauty of this trail takes over. If you're looking for a great place for lunch wait until after you pass the water crossing ( about 3/4 of the way in) and then there will be plenty open areas to explore. I will be back!!

more difficult than stated easy rating

It's a nice short hike, but an extreme amount of graffiti & lots of trash. Wouldn't go back

Nice hike with amazing views of Big Bear Lake. Not hard at all but there are some steep sections. Overall a great hike!

Great hike! once you get to the main junction at the top you can keep going up to Bertha Peak but stick to the right. Overall a great hike with amazing views of Big Bear Lake.

Great hike with a fantastic camping area (if you get there early enough to find a good spot). There is a great waterfall to stand under and cool down near the campsite.
The peak: great views and great winds too! Very good hike all around.
