Trail Overview

The north end of the Bear Creek Trail starts at a bridge that crosses the Bear Creek. It's a fast and flowy trail along a valley floor, and elevated above the Bear Creek, with cool views of the mountains around you. There's one big washed-out area where the trail washed away. It's not that difficult, just a little rocky. There are also a couple of logs down, but they are rideable. The trail is narrow, but fairly straight and flat, with not much elevation gain or curves. The trail flows through beautiful open meadows until the intersection with the Grindingstone trail.

Overall this is an easy to intermediate trail with some narrow sections and a downed log, but is relatively easy without any major obstacles.
