Eye Of God Trail

The eastern side of the Big Bear Valley resembles a desert so plan accordingly and bring lots of water. Starting from the 2N02, follow the dirt road half a mile uphill—the Eye of God should be visible on the right peeking through the trees. On the left, three dirt roads branch off of the 2N02; these roads lead to an overlook of the desert beyond the mountains. The view is captivating, and the author highly recommends taking this short detour before journeying to the rock. This view point may also be an excellent place to park a car if there is no room near the trail. After stopping at the overlook, go back to the 2N02 and continue past another dirt road turnoff on the left about 0.1 of a mile ahead. On the hilltops to the left, the classic Pacific Crest trail can be seen cutting its way through the underbrush. Just 150 feet past the fourth dirt road (0.7 of a mile from the start of the 2N02), a small trail traces its way westward toward Baldwin Lake. A fence post on the left side of the road further marks the point where the trail diverts from the 2N02. Those traveling the 2N02 by car will have to park now. Follow the trail on the right 0.2 of a mile toward the panoramic view of Baldwin Lake until it leads into a small patch of trees. The trail ends at the majestic Eye of God: large quartz rock formation.

Over 2,000 years ago, the Eye of God was a complete dome of exquisite quartz, and the Serrano Indians believed that this rock was actually God’s eye. They took comfort in knowing His watchful gaze looked out at them as they went about their daily lives in the valley. Today, the ancestors of the Serrano Indians still think of this place as sacred.
