In February we went up to Big Bear for the weekend with a group of friends and decided to skip on the crazy crowded Saturday slopes to go hiking instead. We headed to the Discovery Center and hiked the Cougar Crest trail. The trail is 2.5 miles each way and a pretty easy hike without anything too steep. What we weren’t expecting was all of the mud! The sun came out and the snow started melting and we shortly found ourselves hiking in slush and mud. Thankfully I had my all time favorite waterproof Sorel Tivoli boots so I didn’t have to worry about cold, slush, or mud…some fellow hikers were not so lucky. ;)
It’s a beautiful trail and I fully indulged my tree obsession from taking pictures of them to climbing them.
Views from the halfway point and at the top of the trail:
The guys had to roll their pants up to flood length to keep them out of the slush and mud…hilarious. ;)
