Shay Meadow Area Overview

At the eastern end of the Big Bear City area, Shay Meadow bends around Highway 38 where it turns to head down to Redlands. Many of the homes overlook the meadow, the forested hillside or Baldwin Lake and some have acreage and horse property.

  • Rural atmosphere
  • Wide open views to the north and east
  • Large yards, treed on the south end of the area
  • Some small ranches/horse properties
  • More rain, less snow
  • Meadow and (dry) lake overlooks give wildlife views

Natural Surroundings

With clear views of the large meadowland to the east, the forested hillside to the southeast and the usually dry Baldwin Lake, there is ample opportunity for wildlife viewing throughout this area. Besides the usual coyotes and smaller mammals—squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, etc.—there is a small group of burros and occasionally deer who hang out here.

Though the valley has less and smaller trees toward the east, the south end of the area has lots of trees, including live oak, pinion pine, juniper and some Jeffrey pine. The meadow and area surrounding the lake bed are beautiful arenas for many types of wildflowers in the spring and early summer.
