100 Hikes in Southern California: San Bernardino Mountain Trails
by John W. Robinson with David Money Harris (Wilderness Press)
The Skyline Trail runs along the edge of the ridge south of Big Bear Lake, threading through scenic forest with wild?owers and boulder piles and o?ering great views of the San Gorgonio Wilderness across the Santa Ana River canyon. The trail, completed in 2015 through a partnership between the Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation and the Forest Service, has become an instant hit among mountain bikers, but is also an enjoyable trip for hiking and trail running. The trail follows a preexisting ?rebreak bulldozed during the 2003 Old Fire to avoid creating new environmental impacts. As such, the trail passes over most of the bumps on the ridge. Climbs are gently graded for intermediate mountain bikers and may feel a bit circuitous for hikers.
