Super easy trail, perfect for walking your dogs or taking a stroller. The hubby and I enjoyed the beautiful site seeing. Did several stops to take pictures. Will definitely do this hike again.

HikingBugsGreat!

It's flat, scenic and easy. It's the perfect hike/walk for the family. On the eastern edge, you can make it all the way to the Convention Center (near Wyatt's restaurant). Be sure to give it a try.

This trail is great for a morning stroll or a easy family walk. Great views of the lake and great for fishing. I would recommend doing this on a bike, it would be a lot quicker.

Not what I call a hike, but a nice walk mostly along a footbridge with pretty scenery. Once off the bridge, it was pretty muddy, but recent snow was melting. Great place to take kids/family for a quick nature outing, photo opportunity. Good bird watching. Dogs are fine too, but bring poop bags as none are provided.

This is about the easiest trail you can go on in Big Bear, almost 0 elevation gain. Nice views. Not much else to say, good for a quick jog or photo op. Looks better when the lake is full. Can sometimes spot uncommon birds like Heron

Nice walk up in Big Bear again. Middle of the week with school back in session so no crowds. Our usual after hiking lunch spot (BJ’s Sandwich Shop in Big Bear City) was closed on Wednesday. Went instead to the Big Bear Brewery - terrible, over-priced food and beer. Will never go back. Anyone who reads this review, stay away from that place.

Fun little path along the lake. Pretty flat, lots of gnats. I tied it into part of a longer run.

Easy hike with dogs and kids. It is a popular trail for walking, running, and biking so there are usually quite a few people on it.
