Big Bear Lake, CA, May 21, 2012, noon – Big Bear Valley is completely surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest and offers a network of trails for hikers and bikers. That’s why The Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation is promoting the 12 Trails of Big Bear 2012 Challenge. The Trails Foundation has crafted a list that includes 12 of Big Bear’s finest trail adventures. Complete with online trail guides, the list will get you outside to both familiar and new places. Don’t think you know what to expect. While the 12 Trails of Big Bear has several popular trails, more of them are off the beaten track, and will get you out on new adventures. Their website has maps, directions, and guides to each of the 12 Trails of Big Bear. The list has been designed so anyone can do some, if not all of them. And if you finish off all 12 Trails in 2012, that doesn’t mean you’re finished. The Trails Foundation says they’ve planned it out so there will be at least 3 full years of 12 Trails. And adding things up, that’s a lot of ground to explore in Big Bear.
