Champion Lodgepole Pine Trail
The Champion Lodgepole Pine Trailhead is located on the south side of Big Bear Lake. From Hwy 18, turn south on Mill Creek Road which turns into Forest Service (FS) Road 2N10 (dirt fire road with possible rocks, ruts, uneven surfaces. Use caution.) Continue on FS Road 2N10 for 4.5 miles, turn right on 2N11 and continue for 1 mile to the trailhead. The Champion Lodgeople Pine Trail is a gentle walk on a path along a small stream and ends in a meadow with one of the largest known Lodgepole pines in California.
