Big Bear Lake is a small city in San Bernardino County, California, located in the San Bernardino Mountains along the south shore of Big Bear Lake, and surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest. Take a break from the city and head to Swim Beach and Castle Rock Trail 1W03. Explore hidden gems such as Cougar Crest Trail and Mount San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness. Change things up with these side-trips from Big Bear Lake: Old Town Temecula (in Temecula), Joshua Tree National Park (in Joshua Tree) and Geology Tour Road (in Joshua Tree National Park). And it doesn't end there: explore the landscape on two wheels at Alpine Pedal Path, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Lake Fulmor, cruise along Keller Peak Fire Lookout, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
