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. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Rainbow Basin Natural Area and Alpine Pedal Path. Escape the urban bustle at Big Bear Alpine Zoo at Moonridge and 49 Palms Canyon Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Big Bear Lake side-trips: Yermo (Calico Ghost Town & Eddie World), Split Rock (in Joshua Tree National Park) and World Famous Crochet Museum (in Joshua Tree). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Stanfield Marsh Wildlife and Waterfowl Preserve, do a tasting at Cougar Vineyard & Winery, hike along Cougar Crest Trail, and stroll through Castle Rock Trail 1W03.
