Pine Knot Trail to Grand View Point Directions:

Open in maps. Pine Knot Trail access begins in the Aspen Glen Picnic Area which is a short distance from Big Bear Lake in Big Bear, California. Since this trail is located in the San Bernardino National Forest, you will need a permit to access this trail. You can either use an Adventure Pass or an America The Beautiful Pass. There is limited parking at the Aspen Glen Picnic area which will likely fill up early. We parked along the street but pay attention to no parking signs as to not get towed or receive a ticket.

Who Pine Knot Trail to Grand View Point Is For:

Novice Hikers: I think this trail is actually great for novice hikers to test their hiking skill levels. The incline of this trail is at a fairly steady pace without any switchbacks. The hike also has a decent amount of shade to help keep sun exposure to a minimum. Keep in mind, snow or ice on the ground will make this trail more difficult for all skill levels.

Advanced Hikers: This is a perfect hike to spend a few hours on during the day. The views of San Gorgonio are amazing.

Expert Hikers: This is a fun hike to spend a few hours in the morning with no challenging sections. Ice or snow on the trail will make this hike more difficult.

It’s always a good idea to be aware of what type of hiking level you’re at.
