Dropping off the ridge viewpoint, narrow traversing singletrak warms you up with some switchback turns that have a looseness that hint at things to come. Soon the track gives up on that traversing nonsense and heads downward in earnest. Steep and loose, you point and shoot from one dust and loam filled catch corner to another. Brakes and riders both end up making noises. This would be one of the most popular trails in the area if it didn't suck the life out of you to get to the trailhead.

Access Info

Up the Ridgemont Road to Upper Bear Chutes. Climb Bear Chutes to the trailhead.
