Area Overview

Many residents feel a special sense of pride about living in Sugarloaf since it stands out as unique from the rest of the Valley. It has a settled, neighborhood feel while still evoking an atmosphere of living within a mountain forest. The lots are small and the majority of the homes are built narrow and close, but there are plenty of homes built on multiple lots for the option of more space.

  • Local pride in residency here
  • Shaded forest from many trees
  • Most homes are built on flat terrain
  • National forest access out the back door
  • Settled neighborhood

Natural Surroundings

Because the area is surrounded by national forest and is heavily forested itself, there is wildlife galore, from gray squirrels and raccoons to coyotes and an occasional black bear. The area slopes upward moving south and heading eventually to Sugarloaf Mountain in the distance. The majority of the trees in the area are Jeffrey pines, but there is some variety with oak, juniper, and other conifers. Some sections have gorgeous views of the tree covered slopes to the south.

A ten-acre conservation area sits on the northwest corner of Sugarloaf, the Dixie Lee Pebble Plain Habitat. Sugarloaf is on a geologic plateau, created when the ancient lake bottom that covered the area rose up during mountain formation. Remnants of that clay based lake bottom still exist along the edges creating excellent pebble plain habitat areas. These rare pebble plains exist only in Big Bear Valley and Holcomb Valley. In the spring and early summer, pebble plains are covered with tiny, now endangered, plants and wildflowers that exist nowhere else in the world.
