Snow Summit gives you access to the best hiking adventures in the San Bernardino National Forest. Take a one-way trip on the Scenic Sky Chair
up to the top and cruise your way down back to the base area.
Come cool off at 8,200 feet with access to an extensive network of Forest Service trails, and two on-site trails at Snow Summit: Mountain Top Loop
and Log Chute Trail
Mountain Top Loop (1 mile)
This trail is exactly what it sounds like, it’s a one mile loop at the top of our resort that starts and ends at the View Haus.
Although it is not quite as aggressive as the Log Chute Trail, it’s still considered an intermediate trail and we still recommend wearing proper aggressive tread footwear while hiking this trail. The views are spectacular and this trail is a particular favorite of families who visit our resort.
Follow the Signs
We've carefully placed white signs with blue text to guide you on your hike. Follow these signs to get you from start to finish on your day hike.
Stay on the Designated Trails
Our trails are carefully planned out by our Park Crew to avoid any collisions with the Bike Park routes, and to be sure you're lead back to the base area of Snow Summit. It is important to stay on the marked trails.
Drink Plenty of Water
Drink often to stay hydrated. Be sure to pack enough water for the day.
Small snacks often will keep your energy level up. Pack a handful of bars with you just in case, but please be sure to keep the wrappers with you until you have access to a trash can.
Wear appropriate hiking/workout attire such as closed-toe shoes, sweat proof tops, stretchy pants or shorts, hats, and sunglasses.
Apply sunscreen to prevent sunburns. We highly recommend bringing a hat, even on cloudy or cold days.
Check the Weather & Temps
Before you start your hike, always be sure to check the weather and temperature to be sure you're prepared. We recommend starting your hike early. Temperatures are at its highest around 12:30 p.m. - 3 p.m.
