Maple Hill Trails

Maple Hill Trails

Maple Hill Trails in Big Bear Lake is a 13-acre expanse donated by RCK Properties in 2018 to the Bear Valley USD Education Foundation. This area, crafted through a collaboration with Big Bear Trails and the Southern California Mountains Foundation, invites you for a day filled with exploration and enjoyment. As you venture through these trails, remember that they are a gift, maintained through the partnership and good stewardship of all who visit.

The Maple Hill Trails offer a peaceful retreat where you can connect with nature. You can embark on your journey from one of three trailheads: Shore Drive, just north of Big Bear High School off Big Bear Blvd, or near Baldwin Lane Elementary School to the west. As you meander along these paths, be mindful of others, adjusting your speed and intensity to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone. A friendly greeting or a simple ‘hello’ can make all the difference in fostering a warm community atmosphere.

We encourage you to share and respect these trails. Stay on the marked paths and avoid taking shortcuts. Please keep the trails clean by not leaving trash behind, and if you come across any litter, kindly pick it up. Remember, mountain bikers should yield to hikers and horses, and hikers should yield to horses, who always have the right of way. When encountering horses, step down on the lower side of the trail and greet them; this helps the horses recognize you as a friend. Bikers, please use a bike bell for safety. Note that motorized vehicles are not allowed, and wildlife should be respected. For those bringing dogs, they are welcome as long as they are on a leash or under strict control by command, and please ensure all pet waste is removed. Lastly, to preserve the natural beauty of this area, overnight camping, campfires, cooking, or open flames are not permitted.
