Board of Directors
None of us get paid…at least in dollars. However, we get to shape not only dirt, but the future of trails in Big Bear. Dirty but Powerful!
Sierra and her husband Ryan moved to Big Bear in 2013. An eastside resident of Baldwin Lake, Sierra is big fan of hiking, backpacking and fishing. She and her husband have hiked several California peaks including Telescope, Langley, San Jacinto, San Antonio and Mt. Whitney. One of her favorite moments was summiting Mt. Rainier with Ryan on their 3rd anniversary. When she’s not out walking uphill for fun, Sierra is working for the Big Bear Lake Deptartment of Water in Public Information and Water Conservation.
Drawn by blue skies and endless adventure, Shauna made her way to Big Bear Lake in 2008. An avid hiker and backpacker, she has hiked and backpacked in Yosemite, Tuolumne, the Sierra Nevada, Mt Whitney, Mammoth, the Ansel Adams Wilderness, the Grand Canyon, Joshua Tree, Zion, Capital Reef, and more. Her greatest accomplishment was hiking 800 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2014. She found her niche in the Big Bear Trails Foundation after observing trail improvements on high use trails. Shauna got involved with the Foundation in early 2016 and hasn’t looked back. She is specifically interested in sharing a love of the mountains and education on Leave No Trace principals, trail etiquette and how to make the trails better for all of our enjoyment. She is active with the Pacific Crest Trail Association, the National Parks Conservation Association and the Yosemite Conservancy.
Robert Prince, Treasurer
Robert Prince is originally from Buffalo, NY and has a Bachelor degree in Business from Canisius College. He specializes in Information Technology Security, Risk and Compliance and is active in the outdoors including hiking, mountain biking, surfing and snow sports.
Robert’s goal is to encourage people to get outdoors and enjoy nature by removing obstacles; such as helping the disabled with outdoor sports, ensuring safety for our forest visitors and increasing the accessibility to trails for all. By getting more people outdoors, they will hopefully treat nature with respect and appreciation which will in turn lead to treating others, and the planet, with respect and appreciation.
To support these goals, Robert is an active member Snow Summit Ski Patrol and supports volunteer efforts for CAF, US ARC, Nature Conservancy along with local Big Bear outdoor events. Robert’s motto is “Creating a better world, one trail at a time.”

Although he no longer races, Craig enjoys mountain and road cycling, hiking, skiing and traveling with friends and family.
Craig and family moved to Big Bear Lake fulltime in 2000. An avid downhill skier and general outdoors enthusiast, Craig found his cycling passion in 2006 and has been riding a bike ever since! Trails Foundation was a great way to get involved to improve and expand the trails system throughout the Valley. Dedicated bike lanes, bike routes and expanded mountain trails are all his goals. Craig was a founder and currently serves as President of the Big Bear Cycling Association, Chair of the Amgen Tour of California Local Organizing Committee and Chair of Tour de Big Bear.
