View of Valley taken from dirt road in San Bernardino NF. This town is located just next door to the popular destination of Big Bear Lake. Less crowded & more residential than tourist, you can still find rental cabins out to the east side of the lake. Horseback Rides & Rentals are popular in this region.

    Much more quiet than it's neighbor Big Bear Lake, this is a pine forest country-like setting with more residential area & seclusion.
