Big Bear, CA, May 30, 2012, 3:00pm – The Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation is celebrating the kickoff of construction of the Skyline Trail, the first new trail in Big Bear Lake in almost 2 decades.  The event is Saturday, June 2nd, which appropriately enough, is National Trails Day.  The Skyline Trail is a collaboration of the Trails Foundation, the San Bernardino National Forest and the International Mountain Biking Association and will be a 15-mile world-class multi-use single track that will accommodate year round non-motorized uses such as cycling, horseback riding, hiking and snowshoeing planned along the top of the San Bernardino Mountains on National Forest land between the Big Bear and Santa Ana River Valleys offering stunning panoramic views of the area. The trail celebration, titled “Kick and Flick”, will be held at Northwoods Resort in the Village, Saturday, June 2nd from 6:00 to 9:00pm and will include complimentary food, refreshments, and a no-host bar.  The public is invited to this free event to meet the diverse and committed trail advocates behind the project and learn more about this unique collaborative effort.  It will also be the premiere of the documentary “Pedal-Driven”, a bike-umentary featuring cyclists, rogue trail builders, public land managers and trail advocates who tell the story of long-standing confrontations between mountain bikers and federal land management agencies over citizens’ rights and access to public lands.  According...

One Step Closer For Skyline Trail: Public Input Sought

Big Bear, Ca, August 16, 2011, 12:00pm – The Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation is in the process of working with the Forest Service to get a new trail approved.  The proposed trail known as Skyline would span from east to west along the south ridge of the Big Bear Valley, and would provide hikers, cyclists and equestrians with a safe alternative to fire roads such as 2n10 that has heavy vehicle traffic.   This Saturday, there will be a public meeting at the intersection of fire roads 2N10 and 2N06, located south of Snow Summit. The meeting will take place at 10:00am and is an opportunity for people to see displays of the initial presentation, go on a short hike along a general proposed route of the trail, and attendees will be able to ask questions and provide their input or suggestions.  According to Phil Hamilton, Trails Foundation President, the Trails Foundation has been working with the Forest Service to make what he believes will be an “epic trail that will attract users from all over the country when completed.”  The Trails Foundation is a non-profit organization, dedicated to creating, enhancing, preserving and promoting non-motorized use of Big Bear Valley trails and roadways for the enjoyment and transportation of residents and visitors. Last year the Trails Foundation successfully reopened the Seven Oaks Trail after it had been overgrown for...
