The Champion Lodgepole Pine Trail is an easy one-mile round trip hike located on the south side of Big Bear Lake. The trail features a wet meadow and mature conifers including the largest recorded lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) in California! The self-guided trail has 14 numbered posts that correspond to an interpretive guide which is available at the trailhead. The guide highlights the unique diversity and natural history of the area. For those looking for a longer hike with additional wildflower viewing opportunities, the Siberia Creek Trail junction is near the Champion tree: watch for the sign.
