SAN BERNARDINO – The San Bernardino National Forest will begin an immediate partial closure of the Alpine Pedal Path for bridge replacement along the center of the path. The partial closure begins on October 19, 2016 and will continue through November 2016.
The Juniper Point Picnic Area and the eastern and western access points to the path will remain open and accessible. Trail users should plan their use around this partial closure by traveling to the closure location and then returning to their starting point.
The bridge replacement is the first step in a number of activities that will be occurring over the next year to improve the recreational experience of users. A multi-funded partnership developed between the US Forest Service, the City of Big Bear Lake, Big Bear Municipal Water District, Southern CA Mountains Foundation and California Land Management will fund widening the path to 12 feet, installing interpretive signage, and paving to connect the path to the Meadow’s Edge Picnic Area. We ask for the communities continued support and cooperation, as well as thank you for your patience during this time of construction operations.
