Directions to Children\'s Forest Trail
Children's Forest is located in the San Bernardino National Forest between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. To get to Children's Forest take Interstate 10 east from Los Angeles, (or from San Diego, Interstate 215 to 10 east). Then take 30 which runs into 330 which takes you up the mountain to Running Springs. Turn east on route 18 which runs to Big Bear. Very shortly you will see Deerlick Ranger/Fire Station on the right hand side of the road. Turn into the parking lot.
If you come to the ski resort, you've gone too far. In the visitor center you will see an interactive mural that I have designed with area youth. Except during winter, you can also proceed four miles up a dirt road to the Children's Forest Trial. The trail is wheel chair accessible.
