3 Ways To Big Bear!

How many ways do you know to get to Big Bear? Most people are aware of HWY 330/18 “the front way” from San Bernardino through Running Springs and do not realize that there are a total of 3 ways into Big Bear. When all three routes are open, the “front way” is typically the most congested during Holiday periods, weekends and heavy weather days. In efforts to reduce travel time, we would like to raise awareness on two additional routes. Hwy 38 from Redlands is the most scenic route with occasional waterfalls and spectacular views and travelers coming from the High Desert area prefer HWY 18. We recommend taking advantage of these less traveled roads.
