Best Places to See in Big Bear for Your Instagram

In the good old days, taking pictures was a lot of work. You’d have to load the camera with film, swirl the dial on the lens to make sure everything was focused, take a bunch of shots, unload the camera, drive to the developer, drop off the film, and wait ten whole days to discover you had forgotten to take the lens cover off the camera and ALL THE PICTURES WERE RUINED!

Today, we point, click, delete (if they are bad) or upload straight to our Instagram accounts so the entire world can see what we eat, how our kids grew month by month, or how our Big Bear vacation went! And because we love the beauty of our little piece of the world, we’ve created this list of the best Instagram places to see in Big Bear—feel free to upload the pictures taken to your other favorite social media sites as well!

Stanfield Marsh Wildlife and Waterfowl Preserve, 42300 Big Bear Boulevard

The powerful cameras on our cell phones make us all look professional photographers, and when you visit this picturesque preserve, your Instagram followers will be envious of your skills. Whether you’re trying to catch a peak of birds flapping their wings over the marsh or the sight of a mama deer and her fawn delicately snacking in grassy fields, your pics taken from here will wow everyone on your friends list!

The Castle Rock Trail, Mile Marker 45.5

This two-mile-long trail is relatively short but also steep, so it’s a hike best made by people in good physical shape. Now that the warnings are out of the way, we can tell you that the Instagram photo opportunities along this trail are endless. As you hike the trail, the pictures you take from any spot are guaranteed to be stellar, but when you reach the top, the views simply beg to be photographically documented; it is one of the most beautiful places to see in Big Bear. If you listen closely enough, you may even hear the collective gasps of disbelief as your photos are uploaded; the scenery is breathtaking!
