The Big Bear Valley offers a vast collection of mountain biking trails and is known as one of the hot beds of the sport. Mountain bikers of all ages and skill level will find the ideal two-wheel adventure in Big Bear. From the top of the Snow Summit Scenic Sky Chair, mountain bikers have the option of nearly 40 miles of cross-country forest service roads and single-track trails surrounding the resort. Mountain bikers who are interested in flatter, less technical riding terrain can hop on one of the many beginner friendly trails that run through the base area of the resort.

Cross-CountryParadise

For novice riders, the Bristlecone Trail east of the base area and Towne Trail to the west offer gentle, rolling terrain that is a perfect introduction to mountain biking. Intermediates will find slightly more challenging terrain from the top of the Scenic Sky Chair includingSkyline Drive, which rolls across the top of the ridge with great views of Big Bear Lake. A short, steep single-track climb takes you to Grandview Point, which is a great spot to take a break and is the starting point of a thrilling downhill to Towne Trail and back to Snow Summit. It's a nine-mile loop and one of the most popular rides in the area. Those who are looking for more time in the saddle can stay onSkyline Drive all the way to the Champion Lodgepole Pine then loop back to the resort making an epic 16 miler.
