I just finished the Snowshoeing guided nature walk put on my the Discovery Center and led by two great guides. It was an exhilarating experience. We traveled at a reasonable pace and stopped often to notice all the natural life around us. This was my first experience on shoe shoes and was not hard to do. To be out on the Town Trail and see the trees and hills blanketed in the sparkling snow and the lake dusted white was amazing. My guides, Loraine and Rick, knew so much about the different pines, oaks, cedars and willows along the trail. They also noticed and pointed out a number of winter birds and pointed out animal tracks in the snow, and shared very interesting details about them. This event has truly been one of my Big Bear highlight. I very highly recommend this experience to all.
I love coming here reach time I visit big bear. I have been here several times and it's still like it's the first time it's funny. Although this last time I got to see the ranger feed the birds and got some info to see bald eagles in big bear LIVE! AWESOME!! We also got to see an Owl box that wad donated to the discovery center.
