This is a popular paved accessible pathway along the north shore of Big Bear Lake.

The Alpine Pedal Path is an asphalt path that wanders along the north shore of Big Bear Lake from the Stanfield Cutoff to just west of the Solar Observatory. It is easily accessible for hikers, skaters, joggers and even strollers and wheelchairs. This path extends through a pedestrian tunnel under Highway 38, North Shore Drive, to the Cougar Crest Trailhead parking lot. This path continues east 0.6 of a mile and connects with the Big Bear Discovery Center. This site is accessible. Park at Juniper Point or Meadow's Edge Picnic Areas or Stanfield Cut-off.

The Alpine Pedal Path provides an excellent opportunity to view visiting eagles. The San Bernardino Mountains support the largest wintering bald eagle population in Southern California. Eagles typically begin arriving in the area in late November and continue to stay in the area until early April.
