Feeling bored with the same old routine? Need some excitement to mix up the monotony? Here are some suggestions for ways to get out of your comfort zone, and get lost in Big Bear…

Rock Climbing:

Holcomb Valley – was the site for the most gold mines in southern California. You can camp, hike or off-road here. This is a great beginner level spot to get started climbing.

Castle Rock – this is a popular hike with a 500ft elevation. It has views of the lake and wildlife and has been rated as a moderately advanced hike.

North Shore Boulder Field – has been called a fun, challenging and interesting climb. These boulders range from 25-35 feet tall and there are more than 30 ways to climb up them.

Paddleboarding Big Bear Lake

Enjoy the views as you glide atop the calm waters of the lake, and are able to explore hidden coves where boats cannot go.

– Outdoor Yoga at Castle Rock:  climb to the top for a wonderful yoga spot with a view or drop into the Big Bear Mountian Yoga Center and take a class with Colin Schour. His supportive teaching style will revitalize your comfort and inner stability.
