Vad du kommer att göra

Guests will meet me on Splinter's Cabin Road at the actual cabin. This is where the road turns to dirt and it gets to be a sketchy off-road trail heading towards Three Ponds. There is lots of parking here.
We will hike up the dirt road about half a mile to the actual trail, which hugs the creek for most of the hike. The trail is very hard to follow, the further you hike back. Luckily I am anexprt on Deep Creek; I have trekked to Three Ponds close to forty times and I know the easiest way to get there. I will guide you on the correct and safest way to go. We must cross the creek at two separate times so you can take your shoes off for the crossings or wear water shoes. We will hike back into the wilderness alongside the creek for a mile and a half until we reach Three Ponds, one of the best swimming holes in the San Bernardino National Forest.
Once at the swimming hole we will spend and hour and a half just relaxing and swimming. You can even bring fishing gear if you would like to fish here for small trout. If you want to carry inner tubes for floating, in your backpack, those are fun to use here at Three Ponds, also.
Other things to note
I don't recommend bringing dogs on this hike as there are rattlesnakes in this area. But if you do wish to bring your pup, I have no issue with that. I love dogs.

Hi! I'm Amber, the Hungry Mountaineer. I've hiked nearly all the trails in the Big Bear Valley in the last 20 years. I know almost every trail on this mountain between Crestline and Big Bear and love to share my favorite hikes with travelers adventuring through our local wilderness. I'm well versed on local flora and fauna and love to share my knowledge with guests to our local mountains. I also write my own column in our local newspaper about hiking in the San Bernardino National Forest, based on my very popular blog, Hungrymountaineer.com.
When I’m not hiking all over California, you can find me leading hikes locally with my Big Bear ladies hiking group, that I founded in 2018. Join me, on one of my favorite hikes in these mountain on this high altitude hike as we follow the hidden trails alongside Deep Creek.

Var ni kommer att vara

Three Ponds is one of my all-time favorite swimming holes in the San Bernardino Forest. It's a very fun hike & might not be very long but you do have to scamper up cliffs, cross creeks & climb over logs so it takes a bit of time to get to the destination. Which is awesome as it's not crowded whatsoever like other local swimming holes! The cold water feels great & you can easily cool off after a hike in the hot sun.

This hike was perfect! Me, my wife and mother are beginners at hiking and Amber made us feel so comfortable and made sure we took our time to our destination. This hike was perfect for us and so beautiful! We would definitely do it again!

Amber was an excellent host/guide. She's an expert hiker but she goes at whatever pace you feel comfortable going at. I'll definitely book with her again in the future.
