Alpine Pedal Path
Stretch your legs and set out on foot or rent some bikes and point yourself in the direction of the Alpine Pedal Path. The 2.5-mile path is located on the north shore of Big Bear Lake. It’s perfect for all ages and skill levels, since it is mostly asphalt and mostly flat. There are sections that cut close to the water for a beautiful view of the lake, as well as through trees and beautiful scenery for a fun way to get a breath of fresh mountain air and sunshine. The adventure starts at the Stanfield Cutoff and ends near the Solar Observatory. No matter what mode of transportation you choose, make sure to watch for walkers, joggers, bikers, and others gliding along the path on rollerblades.
A breath of fresh mountain air, beautiful mountain scenery, pine forests, and open landscape as far as the eye can see. That’s what you’ll get when you lace up your hiking shoes or boots and head out. Make sure to also pack plenty of water, snacks, and sun protection and before you set off to explore the nature of Big Bear and the surrounding area.
