Skyline Trail – Trail Work Day – September – SHARE was there!
Several SHARE Mountain Bike Club members volunteered with the Big Bear Valley Trails Foundation on a trail work day building the Skyline Trail in Big Bear on Saturday September 13.
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.

Exciting Trail Work Day to Reopen Emerald Canyon Trail
SHARE/IMBA members have a great opportunity to assist OC Parks in reopening this trail is coming up! On February 1st, our partners OC Parks, LCF and IRC are having a trail work day to clear vegetation through out this area to prepare for the placement of a bridge.
RSVPs are a must! Click Here to RSVP
If you’re a OC MTB rider than you are probably familiar with the Emerald Canyon Trail below the BVD and Old Emerald trail intersections that are known as “The Trail To Nowhere”. This hidden gem is one of the most beautiful trails in Laguna Beach, and goes through an incredibly diverse and beautiful range of habitat.
Unfortunately, a couple of years ago, heavy rains completely washed out a 60 foot portion of the trail leaving behind a gully that is close to 30 feet deep, and 60 feet wide! Well the opportunity to assist OC Parks in reopening this trail is coming up! On February 1st we will be working to clear vegetation through out this area to prepare for the placement of a new bridge over the gully. Please volunteer on this day and be part of the reopening of Emerald Canyon Trail!
Details: Emerald Canyon Trail Work Day
- Saturday, February 1st
- 9:00-1:00 pm
- Tools, water and snacks provided
- Meet at the junction of Emerald Canyon and Old Emerald Trail (Not Old Emerald Falls aka BVD)
- No shuttling available so you will need to ride in (fun!) or hike in (about 3 miles). It is at the bottom of Old Emerald Trails in Emerald Canyon. Please check the map for trails from either Dartmoor or Big Bend)
- SHARE/IMBA people that want to ride. We will meet and leave at 8:30 am at Ridge Park Trail Head and ride to the Trailwork Site.
RSVPs are a must! Click Here to RSVP
When you get there, tell them you are with SHARE/IMBA. We look forward to seeing you there!
