Cougar Crest - Bertha Peak Trail

Nice easy going hike. Make sure to get an Adventure Pass or start from the Big Bear Discovery Center free of charge (only 0.6 mi away). Supposedly a well-used trail, we only ran into a couple hikers on our way down. Pretty view of the lake from the top. The incline is pretty gradual, but gets steep at times. Lots of rocks! Reduced our trail running quite a bit. Good easy-moderate hike!

Quick climb before getting into Big Bear. The rocks were fun to navigate and the top had a great view of the west side. The incline is moderately steep and the trail is up to your interpretation at times haha. Great way to get the blood flowing and prep you for the other hikes in the surrounding area. Fun place to bring kids, but make sure they take their time!

this trail is really cool and a lot of cool little detours along the way I did the 14 mile loop on a downhill bike so FYI it's a lot of uphill but once we got to the luge it was awesome and so worth it I recommend this trail I'm doing it again this weekend p.s. bring a lot of water

Beautiful area, TERRIBLE signage for "6 mile hike"... Aka NO SIGNS. We got lost for 4 HOURS!!!! There are hundreds of trails and many lead to NOTHING while others lead to the river. My husband had to carry me across and we still couldn't find a main trail to take us back. We had to use our gps phones & that was even nearly impossible since all the tiny trails were intertwined. It was hot & no one was around!!! I will NEVER go on this hike again. Dont do it!

The trail is beautiful this time of year. Blankets of wildflowers all over the hillside. I rate this trail at the harder side of moderate. It is VERY steep in some parts but its a good workout and I"ll likely be visiting it again sometime.

Vernal and Nevada Falls (The Mist) Trail

Vernal Falls hike:Great hike with astonishing views and a must-do for every hiking connoisseur and a nature lover albeit the rating "moderate" on this is moot in my view. Its quite a climb. We chose the hike via the Mist trail and with kids and steep gradient at times combined with high altitude, we could only go up to Vernal falls. Distance wise it is a 3-plus miles two way. Work up a sweat and be prepared to be drenched by the mist of the Vernal falls...totally worth it! One caveat though towards the end you will have to climb steps to hike to the falls, which are wet, very narrow and crowded. But it is worth the strain-loved that our kids enjoyed it too- youngest is 4 yrs. Highly recommend! We are determined to hike the Nevada falls, but next time... Finally I am glad we visited the world famous Yosemite Park and hiked this gorgeous trail during the National park week!!
