Come join Dave Sp for a weekend of hiking in Big Bear.
I will host a small group of 8 max. We will be staying at my cabin in Big Bear. I have a Wait List going and the space is limited. My only condition is that you must have hiked with me before.
Weather permitting, we will be able to hike comfortably, in warm sunshine, no snow shoes required.
Sat. 10am, Cougar Crest Bertha Peak Trail. Intermediate 8 mi round trip approximate. Meet at the Big Bear Discovery Center, 40971 Northshore Dr. Fawnskin, Ca., 92333.
In the first mile there is only a gentle uphill increase, however in mile two, the trail gets steeper and rocky in places. The panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains make it well worth the hike.
DISTANCE: The hike is about 2.6 miles up, starting at 7000 ft and going up to Bertha Peak at around 8100 ft...We will come down from Bertha Peak and start hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail. We will do 2-4 miles on the trail which will bring the total hike to about 8-10 miles depending on where we turn around
Sun. 10 AM. Hike a portion of Pacific Crest Trail, from Onyx Summit to Dave's Cabin. Meet at Dave's cabin.
