This is a nice easy hike with good views. I recommend this for anyone that wants a quick hike.

Nice hike...went early on a Wednesday morning and didn't see another soul the whole way up or back. Great views of San Gorgonio Mountain on one side and Big Bear Valley and distant desert on the other.

I would definitely not call this an easy hike. Trail was well marked, quit steep just about all the way up, however, levels out at the top. Nod that I would call easy, Great junction to other trail at the top. Nice place at the top for lunch. I definitely recommend this hike to others. Make sure to bring plenty of water and pace yourself. I took this hike at the end of August and would recommend you start early due to the exposure of the sun first thing in the morning.

This is a great trail. It is steep and we climbed in August so it was a good work out. (I would not describe it as easy!) we rode the chair lift down. Great views from halfway up and at the top.

The feeling of City nearby persists, but nature eventually wins

Great hike just before the mountain biking season, full access to the mountain, no need to stick to trail. Was very foggy at the top, make sure to take gear for all weather.

Interesting to hike around the chair lifts. Going up in tennis shoes was fine but coming down it was slippery.

Beautiful hike, steep in places. Nice and private, we only saw a few other hikers on the trail. We hiked the Log Chute trail to the top and enjoyed a great lunch and view.

Perfect summer hike from base to the top of the trail where you can treat yourself to refreshments and bbq at View Haus for having completed the uphill climb. The hiking trail surprised me as steeper than expected, especially in certain spots. It was fairly dusty and hot (August weather). I couldn't find anything that actually marked the true distance, but approx 3 miles total out and back is my guess. Just jog around the base a bit or to the resort directly from wherever you're staying in the area if you want to make it a longer distance workout.

I love Big Bear. The skiing is not the greatest, but the whole atmosphere of Big Bear makes up for any shortfalls.
