With its rich history and legacy as a stop off town for the wagon trails and gold miners, Angelus Oaks is a tiny, tranquil Southern California town surrounded by majestic forest just 30 miles from San Bernadino. Big Bear Lake is also in the region just a few miles away.
Angelus Oaks is a top spot for bicyclists due to the proximity of the Santa Ana River Trail, well-known for its intensity. Hikers can explore the San Bernardino Peak wilderness and the Vivian Creek Trail or other more gentle trails in the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Jenks Lake and the Santa Ana River are also popular with hikers, and offer fishing, bird watching, and recreational fun by the waterside. Big Bear Lake is where it's at for winter activities with skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing. You can also enjoy it here in the other seasons, with hiking, fishing and beautiful nature calling for hiking and exploration in the wilderness.
It's lovely to visit here all year round, blessed with Southern California's generally pleasant climate with warm summers and mild winters. Spring time can provide nature lovers with some beautiful vistas and wonderful hikes and cycle rides, or come in winter for the snowy activities at Big Bear.
