One of my favorite holiday memory’s was hiking this trail with my family on Thanksgiving. My mother hired our neighbor, a gourmet cook who was running a catering business at the time to cook us Thanksgiving dinner. We went hiking here towards the end of the day and by the time we got back home we opened to front door to the wonderful smells of the feast that awaited us. Needless to say I have fond memories of this hike, the view from the top does not hurt either. Once you make it to the top you will have a great view of Big Bear Lake below and San Gorgonio Peak beyond. While not a hike in the San Diego area, if you are ever in the Big Bear area and want to experience a great hike, this would be one to check out.
