Why We Liked It

Grass Valley Lake is a charming icon to local Lake Arrowhead residents. From fall’s falling leaves to winter’s cold frost to summer’s golden grass, we enjoy hiking around the lake & enjoying the ever changing mountain environment. The views are spectacular and the trail loop connects to additional trails that go further into the forest.
