Big Bear Lake in the Trinity Alps

Big Bear Lake in the Trinity Alps (California)

The hike to Big Bear Lake is not easy at over eight miles round trip and almost 3,000 feet of elevation gain, but this is one of the more gorgeous lakes in the Trinity Alps. The drive from Ashland is about two hours to the trailhead.

I have never come back from a vacation with so many bumps, bites, bruises, and burns, but the memories are fantastic. I’ll be posting more photos from our four days on the Rogue River here and here.

A mere six years ago, pre-Japan or P.J. on the Case-family-Anno-Domini timeline, my kids looked like this at the downtown Ashland Pita Pit.

After living in Ashland for nearly 14 years, I thought I had been on every nearby hike. Turns out I was wrong. Hobart Peak (AKA Hobart Bluff) is more of a walk than a hike as it isn’t long (about 3 miles round trip) and only has a bit of elevation gain near the end. The sky was completely blue on the day we went. I want to go again for a sunrise or sunset or between storms.

If you are in Ashland and want to check it out, get on Highway 66 toward the Green Springs. After a little less than 15 miles from Oak Tree Northwest Bar & Grill, turn right onto Soda Mountain Road. In about 3.5 miles park at the trail marker near a meadow. You’ll be on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) initially. A sign a mile in will direct you to the left to get to the location in today’s photo.

My little boy is all grown up now and will be heading off to college this fall. He has decided to go to the University of Oregon. I’ve been rather indifferent about the Oregon schools (other than SOU where I work of course) until now, but from here on out I will be a fan of the Ducks.
