- off Hwy 18 Big Bear Lake San Bernardino National Forest
Lonely Planet review for Mountain-Biking
Big Bear is mountain-biking mecca with over 100 miles of trails for cross-country adventure. It hosts several pro and amateur races each year. A good place to get your feet in gear is along the aptly named 9-mile Grandview Loop which starts at the top of Snow Summit, easily reached via the Scenic Sky Chair. One of the best single-track rides is the intermediate 13-mile Grout Bay Trail, which starts on the north shore.
For more experienced bikers, Holcomb Valley, Delamar Mountain and Van Duesen Canyon off Hwy 38 are popular destinations.
