Gray's Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Forested 7,952-foot Grays Peak looms close over the western end of Big Bear Lake. The peak is named for Gray’s Landing on the north shore of the lake, founded by Alex Gray in 1918 and still used by anglers.This easy-graded, pleasant walk through stands of Je?rey pine, black oak, and white ?r, lies partly on trail, partly on ?re road. Grays Peak is a bald eagle wintering habitat area and the trail is closed to public use from November 1 to April 1."

"Grays Peak is named for Alex Gray, who founded Gray’s Landing on the north shore of Big Bear Lake in 1918. The 7952- foot summit is heavily forested, making for an enjoyable walk through the woods. This is one of the most popular moderate hikes in the Big Bear area and you should expect to have plenty of company on a pleasant summer day. The trailhead is in winter habitat for bald eagles and is closed from November 1 to April 1."
