The Big Bear Historical Museum will dedicate an authentic Serrano Willow House on Saturday at 10:00 AM.

There are hundreds of artifacts and old buildings that accurately display the early mountain lifestyle. Kids will enjoy activities including panning for gold!
If you enjoy the outdoors, there are plenty of activities to choose from.
- In the east valley try the Sugarloaf Mountain trail. It’s off of Highway 38, across from Hatchery Road. Head in a couple of miles and you’ll see parking for the trail head.
- Off-roading enthusiasts can head into the back country through Van Duesen Canyon Road on the north shore in Big Bear City.
- Mountain bikers can access all of the trails behind Snow Summit by riding the Sky Chair.
- Fishing has been great all year due to chilly mountain weather. If you plan to spend time on the lake this weekend, watch for the possibility of thunderstorms.
The pace of our mountain lifestyle allows us to enjoy a variety of indoor and outdoor activities. Check out our neighborhood guide for details about each area in the Big Bear Valley.
