      The Big Bear Lake Trail Center is quickly becoming known as the hot spot for classic east coast single track. Years of trail development, by experienced mountain bikers, have created a trail system that will have you grinning ear to ear. The terrain has everything to offer; gradual climbs, large embedded rocks, tight slaloms, challenging rock gardens, and off the saddle downhills. Almost, fifty miles of trail wind through knee deep ferns, soft needle pine plantations, and groves of mountain laurel. Riders of all ages and abilities will find trails to fit their individual riding skills and need for adrenaline. Big Bear is the place to bring the entire family to experience mountain biking at its best. We have onsite camping available in our Beaver Creek Campground so make a weekend out of it. You can purchase a season pass online for $30 or the day use fee is $10 per rider, 12 and under are free. Trails are open from Jan 1 to Oct 31 each year.
