Skyline Trail Description

Learn about the Skyline Trail on MTBPROJECT.COM

The Skyline Trail is a collaboration of the Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation and the US Forest Service. It’s the first new single track in Big Bear in 20 years, and offers users an alternative to the highly used dirt roads near the top of Snow Summit in the Big Bear Lake area. This cross country single track has stunning views of Mt. San Gorgonio and travels through rock outcroppings and ponderosa pine forests at close to 8,000 feet of elevation. How long is Skyline? As of last year, the Skyline Trail is 8.5 miles one way, from the junction of 2N10/2N06 on the east end to where it finally crosses over 2N10 again on the west end. Several miles where added this summer.
