To help reduce traffic congestion in the paved parking lots adjacent to the Bear Valley Visitor Center, if you are going for a hike, please park your vehicle(s) in the large gravel parking lot on the east (left) side of the access road just northeast of the Bear Valley Trailhead. The gravel parking lot has room for ~210 vehicles, whereas there are only ~50 spaces in the paved lots. Parking is free. Download the Bear Valley Area Map (427 KB PDF), which shows the location of the trailhead parking lot relative to the Bear Valley Visitor Center. Pull-through spots are available for oversized vehicles, such as RVs and horse trailers, on the west (right) side of the access road just northwest of the trailhead.
