  • We loved this hike in the snow last weekend. Great views of the lake and ski resort. Went up about 2 miles, then turned around - about 2 hours. Perfect!  more »

  • This hike has a crazy incline but if a 250 lb guy can do it, you can as well. It's really worth doing as you get to the top, you can see a really nice view of Big Bear lake. One of the best hikes I've done. Please make sure to have good shoes as there are spots where you can slip and fall down. Also, please bring plenty of water. Good luck!!!!
  • WE HAD SO MUCH FUN WALKING AND HIKING THIS TRAIL. THE PEOPLE ALL AROUND WERE VERY NICE, HELPFUL, AND MOTIVATING. BEAUTIFUL VIEWS AND VERY PEACEFUL. WE REALLY ENJOYED THE NATURE PART AND WILL DEFINITELY BE RETURNING VERY SOON. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED HAVING TO EXPERIENCE THIS PLACE.
  • Very well traveled. Hard to stay on path cause no one respects the walk ways, and signs are hard to find. Could easily get lost. When you get to the top there is a lot of roadways that cars travel on and you can find other paths, or the lake. Hard to find the sign to actually finish the castle rock trail. Still not sure where it was
  • The trail goes uphill so the experience was rewarding when we reached the top. You can see the beautiful Big Bear Lake from the above. Becareful of the sand because we slipped many times going up. Also, don't forget to hydrate!
  • Nice trail but as explained.... It is classified as moderate...the first part is a pretty stiff climb, after that not so bad. Overall, I really like it; it was a very nice challenge after a few years of not going on a trail. Will do it again to explore a bit more the surroundings.
