Experience Glitter Gulch
It's "FREE" to visit Big Bear's only ghost town. There lots of good ol' fashioned photo opportunities and family entertainment to be had.
Glitter Gulch is our reincarnated mining town exclusively resurrected to offer visitors a glimpse of an old mining town of the 1800's that brought many folks to the back country of Big Bear Lake hoping to strike it rich! Ultimately, Holcomb Valley yielded the largest gold strike in Southern California.
Stroll down the weathered board walk in Glitter Gulch and read many humorous signage around the town.
The town has a façade of a saloon, an assay station, general store and undertaker's parlor.
Jail yourself at the Sheriff's station and check out what the town Undertaker is offering.
Pay your respects at the "Pay Dirt" Cemetery, read humorous tomb stone epitaphs and discover how the inhabitants met their untimely end.
