Granite-ringed Big Bear Lake makes a good overnight backpack trip: A variety of plants line the trail on the way up, you’ll love the lake’s clear waters and steep glacial cirque, and it’s easily accessible from Highway 3. Mountain alder, ferns, and western azalea thrive in moist areas below the lake.
