"Tucked amid the tall, straight trunks of lodgepole pines at nearly 2 miles above sea level, the wind-sheltered and mostly bug-free Trail Fork Camp is a peak bagger’s delight. Just above the trail camp lies the lightning-tortured roof of Southern California—San Bernardino Mountain— containing four named high points within reach of an easy, half-day stroll. Farther east lies the big daddy of Southern California summits—San Gorgonio Mountain— within reach of an all-day (16mile round-trip) day hike involving only moderate elevation change." Read more

This was a very nice trail. Very easy to slightly moderate level. We hiked all the way to the end and still had plenty of energy, so we hopped on to the Pacific Crest Trail and did about another mile or before turning back. Total time was about 3 hours. The weather was perfect and the view of Big Bear was amazing.

This is a great trail. Beautiful views of Big Bear Lake. The last mile up Bertha's Peak was very difficult, but worth the hike, the view's were great of the lake and the valley. The trail was easy to follow and had shade through most of it. We had lunch at the top and then hiked back, with the lunch the hike took us about 4 hours, we're in moderate shape.
