Description: Traditionally done on a mountain bike, Hanna Flats is equally fantastic on foot. Starting at the top, you travel on a decomposed granite twisty trail through granite boulders. Most noticeable is the scorched and recovering landscape; previously Ponderosa Pines, Oaks, and Manzanita, the Butler 2 Fire from 2007 completely transformed this area. The fire marks lessen after several miles and the green forest returns in time to drop you past the Gray’s Peak Trail and on down to Big Bear Lake.
Possible Loops / Variations: If you’re on a bike, park at the bottom and ride up Forest Road 3N14 to Hanna Flats Campground and then loop on back down. If you’re hiking, start at the bottom and make your goal the water spigots at the campground, then hike on back down.
Trailhead and Parking: Park near Hanna Flats Campground and find the trailhead directly behind camping site #51. You can also park at Gray’s Peak Trailhead on Highway 38
Trail Etiquette: Always be courteous to other trail users. All users yield to equestrians, with cyclists also yielding to hikers. Travel only at safe speeds, and stay on designated trails to protect our fragile mountain environment.
For Your Safety: Notify someone of your planned route and estimated time of return. Outdoor activities can be dangerous; use caution at all times and be prepared with water, food, and adequate equipment and knowledge.
