This Saturday, January 7th, REI and the National Forest Association will host Southern California Winter Trails Day at the Big Bear Discovery Center.
From 10AM to 2PM, the area will host free snowshoe lessons and demonstrations for those who don’t have their own gear. Visitors with their own snowshoes can also sign up for a longer snowshoe hike, compete in a 100-yard dash, or take nature walks around the Discovery Center – all for free! (Reservations are required for the snowshoe hike – call 909-382-2790)
Every half hour between 11AM and 1PM visitors can pay $3 to take a class in animal tracking as well. More activities and celebrations will also be taking place in the city of Big Bear Lake as well.
