Baby Bear may be the shortest and easiest loop at Coldwater but it's definitely not boring.

Starting at the Cold Springs trailhead, ride clockwise past the trail kiosk. The trail is relatively flat with some smaller rollers to begin - it's a good chance to get a feel for a mountain bike-optimized trail.

As the loop turns northeast you'll encounter an optional line. Stay right for the easier line. If you stay left, you'll encounter a section of flagstone rocks. The section is not overly technical, just a chance to get a feel for riding armored sections of trail.

Soon after you'll come to an intersection with the Mama Bear loop. Turn right to continue on Baby Bear.

From here, the canopy over the trail corridor opens up as the route has little elevation change. After a small open area, the trail ducks into a grove of pines.

The last part of the trail has a short descent and climb as it bends around back to the trailhead. This section also includes an intersection with the Bomb Dog trail.
