During your travels it is important to take in the sights all around you. The same can be said during a trip to Big Bear, as it features some of the most gorgeous scenery in all of Southern California. We have highlighted the top three most scenic Big Bear attractions. Here is how to get to them:
Boulder Bay Park
Big Bear Lake is very picturesque on its own but there are incredible spots where the views are taken up a notch. Boulder Bay Park continues to be a local favorite and has plenty of space for you to spend the day. As the name suggests, Boulder Bay Park features quite a few boulders, so parking is limited, especially during the busier weekends. Boulder Bay Park can be found at 39180 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake, CA 92333. The park is on the southern side of the lake and can easily be accessed just off the Highway 18 when heading west.
Castle Rock Trail
Not all views are seen down by the lake but instead on one of the many incredible hiking trails in the area. The trail is considered an easier hike for beginners and should take approximately one to two hours to reach the summit. Once you do, make sure to snap as many pictures as possible, as you will be able to see the surrounding area of Big Bear. Castle Rock Trail can be found at 38523 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear Lake, CA 92315. Head East on Highway 18 and you will find the trail in between the Village and the dam. No Adventure Pass is needed to enjoy this trail.
Stanfield Marsh Boardwalk & Wildlife Preserve
The best views of local wildlife can be found at nearby Stanfield Marsh Boardwalk & Wildlife Preserve. While there are plenty of hiking trails, the biggest draw is the abundance of wild birds to be seen. You can find this awesome viewing area at 42300 Big Bear Blvd, Big Bear, CA 92314. It is located on the southern shore at the crossing of Starvation Flats Rd and Big Bear Blvd.
