Things to Remember when Hiking in Big Bear
The Big Bear Mountains can give you various microclimates. It can be cool most of the time since the general climate in Big Bear is Alpine. However, some locations can give you desert climates such as in the Cactus Flats and the East valley. Be sure to prepare you gear fist in your Big Bear cabins before you set foot for a nature hiking trip.
Since the climate can be different at times, the weather also changes, sometimes suddenly, while at the mountains. The heat can be extreme at times especially while on trails where there are a few trees. Just like in a desert, the hot weather can drop very low, most of the time, rapidly, when the sun goes down and the sky turns dark. Again, prepare everything first in your vacation homes in Big Bear so you can be ready for the weather changes. You can carry a jacket or a sweater even though the weather is hot at the start of the hike.
Just like in any forms of exercise and other outdoor activities, carrying water is a must. Even if you plan to have a hike in short trails, carry water still. Appropriate footwear should also be worn for your protection. Caretakers and managers of most of the various vacation and cabin rentals in Big Bear also give reminders on the numerous activities that can be done in Big Bear, including hiking, to help you.
