That sounds like such a fun field trip! The best route to Big Bear from Los Angeles is to take I-10 E out of the city, then merge onto CA-210 E. From there, you can exit to CA-330 N towards Big Bear and follow the road signs!
The whole drive will only take about two hours, although you might hit some traffic if you’re driving during rush hour. That’s definitely a doable day trip for your kids—and you’d have plenty of time at the lake to hike, explore, and learn about the ecosystems at work in the area.
