With its heavily forested hills and valleys, central location, and endless recreational opportunities, the Moonridge area is one of Big Bear’s more popular residential neighborhoods. Moonridge is home to Bear Mountain Ski Resort, Bear Mountain Golf Course, and the Moonridge Animal Park (also known as the Big Bear Rescue Zoo). The San Bernardino National Forest virtually surrounds the area and several popular hiking trails originate and wind through the steep canyons and hills. Big Bear Lake, the Big Bear Airport, and the shopping district are all just minutes away. Although winter weekends can see a crush of visitors near Bear Mountain, Moonridge is usually a quiet, tranquil residential neighborhood.
Moonridge real estate comes in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges, from small cabins and cottages in the mid-$100,000’s to custom estates on multiple acre lots approaching the million dollar mark. The typical Moonridge property is a two/three bedroom multi-level cabin on a hillside lot with views of the surrounding mountains, priced from the mid $200,000’s to $400,000. Buildable lot prices start below $50,000 with view lots available for under $100,000. Homes in the upper Moonridge area feature some of the best views in the Big Bear Valley.
Moonridge is also known for wildlife sightings and above-average snowfall, due to its proximity to the National Forest and increased elevation. Bear Mountain, although not quite as crowded as Snow Summit, is popular with the snowboard crowd and is known for its terrain park and half-pipe. The Bear Mountain Golf Course is a fun little 9-hole links-style course with a driving range, pro shop, and restaurant. The Moonridge Animal Park rescues injured wild animals from all over the United States and is home to the only remaining Grizzly Bears in the valley.
