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.

loved it & very dog friendly.

This hiking trail is perfect for a family with small kids! We had a blast! It has 16 check in spots, make sure you get a map before starting, they are located by the trail entrance. Also, you will need a parking pass to park in the lot. We loved learning and hiking together. It's about a mile and a half. Enjoy!

Super easy trail. Perfect for beginners. Went with my sister who carried a baby on her back the entire time. My dog had a blast. We didn't see very many people. Definitely a fun little trail.
