Trail Description
About this trail
Grandview Point and Pine Knot Trail Loop
Intermediate / Advanced - 9 miles total

From The Adventure Hostel ( 527 Knickerbocker Rd. ) in the Village ride up Knickerbocker Rd. Just as the road starts to turn you will see fireroad 2N08 on your left. This is a tough 4 mile climb all the way to Grandview Point. (2 miles climbing, 2 miles relatively flat) On your way to Grandview Point you will pass Towne Trail to Snow Summit on your left, 2N51Y on your left, cross Pine Knot Trail (1E01) and 2N17 on your right and arrive at Grandview Junction. Take the short .25 mile climb to Grandview Point and enjoy the view and some food and drink. You are about to enjoy the best singletrack descent in the area all the way down to Mill Creek Road Picnic Area. During your descent on Pine Knot Trail (1E01) you will go straight across 2N10 and 2N08. When you get to the picnic area take a right on Mill Creek Road, then a right on Highway 18. Go straight through the village and you will hit Knickerbocker Rd. Go left and you will be back at the Adventure Hostel.

Review: This is a really fun little DH and one of the oldest trails in the area. It will probably be a little less crowded now that they opened the bike park back up.

Review: This trail is fun fast and a great way down the mountain after riding skyline. Watch out for hikers they like to hide around the blind corners. Great trail!!!

Review: One of the easiest singletrack trails in the Big Bear area. The smooth singletrack is a nice break from the gnar over at Snow Summit, and is a super fast, flawy descent!!

Review: 1eo1 was my first serious singletrack ride in california as i moved from new york also called cabin 89 trail. it is possible to ride this entire trail from top to bottom wihout even pedaling! you must take the short side ride up to grandview point before turning around and heading back to the start of 1eo1. also grandview point is an excellent spot to spark one before heading down the trail (if you partake in the sacred act of enjoying jah's almighty) peace out and blaze on!!!!
