Grandview Point and Pine Knot Trail Loop - TRAIL

Grandview Point and Pine Knot Trail Loop - Trail, Big Bear lake, California

The Big Bear Lake area is a fun place to ride. It is cool in summer when most of Southern California is HOT. THE TRAIL: This is a tough 4 mile climb all the way to Grandview Point. (2 miles climbing, 2 miles relatively flat) On your way to Grandview Point you will pass Towne Trail to Snow Summit on your left, 2N51Y on your left, cross Pine Knot Trail (1E01) and 2N17 on your right and arrive at Grandview Junction. Take the short .25 mile climb to Grandview Point and enjoy the view and some food and drink. You are about to enjoy the best singletrack descent in the area all the way down to Mill Creek Road Picnic Area. During your descent on Pine Knot Trail (1E01) you will go straight across 2N10 and 2N08. When you get to the picnic area take a right on Mill Creek Road, then a right on Highway 18. Go straight through the village and you will hit Knickerbocker Rd. NOTES: Its east to go fast on this trail, but watch out for hikers and bikers coming up on blind corners! The Pine Knot Trail is also suitable for an out and back ride from Mill Creek Rd.

I added this trail and yes I'll review it for more shameless Big Bear promotion. The snow melts sometime in April and if we are lucky we can ride into December if the snow comes late. Big Bear Lake is at 6700 feet and most trails go uphill to around 8000 feet. So flatlanders should bring your oxygen cannisters. You can also take your bike up Snow Summit's chairlift in the summer.
