Bear Valley is a recreational paradise! Situated at an elevation of 7000 feet, you feel like you are on top of the world. Bear Valley is located just across the Calaveras County line in Alpine County.
Bear Valley is your springboard into all-things out doors: rock climbing, grappling, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, windsurfing, backpacking, camping, fishing (lake and stream), star-gazing, down-hill skiing, snowboarding, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding!
All are just steps from this quaint mountain town serving as a beacon for those that crave adventure. Living in Bear Valley is not for everyone; not all roads are plowed and access in the winter may only be available by snowmobile. But if you are a die-hard mountain lover, this just may be the place for you!
