Route Description for Grays Peak Trail
For those outdoor enthusiasts in the San Bernardino area that are after a beautifully scenic hiking route that isn’t over technical or challenging, the Grays Peak Trail is a fun hike that offers just enough difficulty and some truly rewarding views overlooking the expanse of Big Bear Lake.
Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the north through the cover of the forest, following the trail as it climbs uphill past the Yellow Post #1 Campsite. From here, the route will bend to the west and continue uphill through the forest, although the tree cover will lighten somewhat.
After traversing the north face of Grays Peak, the trail will turn to the south and continue pushing further uphill through some rocky terrain on the way to the summit. Once there, you will be met with gorgeous views overlooking Big Bear Lake and the surrounding mountains. After pausing for a quick rest, you can head back down the mountainside along the same route to return to the trailhead where you began your journey up Grays Peak.
