Alpine Pedal Path – Big Bear Lake, California

Alpine Pedal Path in Big Bear Lake, California

View of Big Bear Lake from the Alpine Pedal Path.

The Alpine Pedal Path is an easy stroll near the north shore of Big Bear Lake. You can start either at the Stanfield Cutoff or the boat launch at the east or at a small dirt parking area just off North Shore Drive near the Solar Observatory at the west end.

The path itself is suitable for joggers, hikers, bikers, children and pets. It’s 100% paved, mostly flat and winds through pine forest, past meadows, a campground and some RV resorts, but you only get a good look at the lake near the east end. The path is about 2.5 miles from end-to-end.
