A couple weekends ago, my husband and I took a quick overnight trip to Big Bear for some quality mountain-lake-infused fresh air. We hiked Castle Rock in the morning before heading back to LA. Though difficult to find the trailhead, this 3 mile round-trip trail was easy and fun to navigate, with opportunities for amateur-friendly rock climbing and astounding views the entire way up.
Getting to the trailhead: Off of Big Bear Blvd, just west of Talbot Drive, the trail starts and ends on the southeast (non-lake side) of the road near the 40 MPH sign. There's also a trailhead sign (but some of us didn't see that any of the 3 times we passed it).
