This is a nice, smooth road that is popular with hikers and mountain bikers. You'll be travelling between two ski areas hidden by trees and will see a lot of side road options to check out. For the best views, you'll need to get out for short walks along the way.
From Highway 18 on the southeastern end of Big Bear Lake, head southeast on Moonridge Drive. Bear right after one mile on Club View Drive. After another 1.2 miles, bear right on Balsam Drive. It circles counterclockwise past Aspen Drive to start of Forest Road 2N10. No parking here.
