Overview

2N08 - Knickerbocker, south of Big Bear Lake, is one of many Forestry Trails in the San Bernardino National Forest. The trailhead is literally in walking distance from the Village in Big Bear. This trail is easy, as are all of the trails on the south side of the lake. The views to the north, including Big Bear Lake, Holcomb Valley, and Gold Mountain, are spectacular. The trail ends on 2N10 - Skyline, where you can go left or right to discover more trails. The trail is absolutely beautiful after the first snowfall, but don't delay, the Forest Service closes the trail as conditions warrant. The entire Big Bear Trail System includes many hiking and biking trails and they are well marked.
