Grand View Point

Grand View Point Professional Review and Guide

"Grand View Point, high on the ridge above Big Bear Lake, offers an unobstructed view across the Santa Ana River Canyon to the tall summits of the San Gorgonio Wilderness. A somewhat confusing network of trails leads up from the Aspen Glen picnic area to the point. Go on a clear day when you can fully appreciate the vistas. This whole ridge south of Big Bear is popular among mountain bikers."

"This trip climbs from the Aspen Glen Picnic Area to the summit of the high ridge that separates Bear Valley from the basin of the Santa Ana River. En route you are rewarded with occasional views over Big Bear Lake and its crowded resort complex.

From aptly named Grand View Point you look across the deep trench of the Santa Ana to the lofty peaks and ridges of the San Gorgonio Wilderness. You’re on trail or ?re road all the way to Grand View Point. This trail is popular with cyclists and horseback riders. The USGS Big Bear Lake topographic map doesn’t show the complete trail or all of the side trails."

"After the picnic area, Mill Creek Road becomes Forest Service Road 2N10 (Skyline Drive). This road will take you very near the point; the trail crosses the road a short distance below the summit. A quarter-mile walk leads to the top. This is an option for people who do not want to hike the entire distance of the trail."
