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.

Emerald Canyon Train in Laguna Coast Wilderness Park – Open

Thank You Irvine Ranch Conservancy and OC Parks

Emerald Canyon “Trail to Nowhere” has been re-opened

With the help of non-profit organizations, members of the public and community groups, OC Parks has re-opened the Emerald Canyon Trail. The trail was closed due to extensive damage sustained after heavy rains in 2010. The trail reconstruction included constructing a 60-foot bridge over a landslide area.

Emerald_1_sm

New 60′ Bridge

The project was a partnership between OC Parks, as the land owner, and Irvine Ranch Conservancy and Laguna Canyon Foundation, as non-profit support groups focused on the protection and preservation of the open space. Working together with community groups such as SHARE Mountain Bike Club and other volunteers from the public, the challenging project made constant progress over a six-month period.

Initial restoration work began on Emerald Canyon back in January. The most challenging step prior to opening the trail was to complete the construction of an additional bridge over a deep gully created by the storm damage. More than 1,500 bridge components were either hand-carried along the single-track trail or hauled by a powered wheelbarrow approximately ¾ mile to the bridge location.

Once at the work-site, the components had to be partially assembled and then hoisted across the gully on a suspended cable system. The final assembled bridge weighs in at just over 10,000 pounds, and is capable of handling equestrians and light maintenance equipment loads of up to 4,000 pounds.

Vegetation along the closed trail was overgrown and needed to be heavily trimmed, to create a final width of 36 inches. Crews also elevated the trail in sections that needed a natural drain to channel runoff away from the trail surface. A wooden bridge was constructed over a large section of trail that had eroded away.

This Emerald Canyon trail follows the bottom of Emerald Canyon in Laguna Coast Wilderness Park and is one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Orange County. SHARE highly recommends this trail.
