Great hike with easy to follow trail. You can park for free at the big bear discovery centre & walk along the short connection trail from there to the start of the trail head.

Starts in the North side of Big Bear. Parking lot holds about 40 cars. Some sites say its a 4 hour hike.The first 3 miles is a fairly gradual slope, kinda easy. The last 1/2 mile gets pretty steep and challenging. You get to see the pump station at the peak from time to time as you round some corners. The views are some of the best I've seen! We ran down and completed it in 2:19.
