The Drive Up the Mountain

Big-BearLake-Drive-Highway-330

Driving Hwy 330 to Big Bear Lake can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. When I first started to make this journey, I was anxious about all the curves and the uphill climb. Now that I’ve done it a zillion times, it’s not a bad drive.

Here’s how to make the drive easier.
First: Go slow. Don’t worry about getting to the Lake at a certain time. Safety is more important. Drive as slowly as you feel comfortable.

Second: Pull Over. You’re driving slow and that’s ok, but use a turn out as soon as you have a car behind you. The road has turn outs all along it and it’s the law that slower traffic MUST pull over for faster cars.

Third: Enjoy the scenery by taking breaks and getting out of your car. The views are fantastic and depending on the weather and time of day, you’ll get a different one every time you go up.
