Good climbing practice, but pretty remote/isolated. Unless you're doing an XC loop around the whole park, I would skip this and Hall Mountain and stick to the center and north west trails. Park in the small area at the end of Podunk Rd on the Southern end of the park if you want to take this downhill.

Rode this from the green dot to red square and it was an absolute blast. Nice flow (just watch out for the BIG rock, stay right of it) and you carry enough speed that you don't need to pedal much to get up the hills.

I dont agree with Trailforks on the start/end recommendation on this trail. The proper way to ride this trail is south to north. A good run on this trail will make your entire day better.

Trail Alp D' Huez
Sentinel down to Alp is one of the most enjoyable sections of the park. If you like fast switch, you'll like ALP.

The one trail I wouldn't leave the park without riding. Slight rooted climb at the beginning, but worth it.

Trail Big Bear
This is a super smooth trail with a small drop to bypass a small rock garden and also a little rock jump. Its one of my favorites so far and a very enjoyable ride for all skill levels.

Just an exceptional trail to practice your climbing. Even gets broken up in the middle a bit with some short, fun descents. If you do this trail everytime u go to bear brook I promise you it'll make you a better mountain biker. Leads you straight to the top of hall mtn for a great view too.

Trail Alp D' Huez
This is commonly ridden North to South, for a bit more action, speed, challenge, and (IMO) fun, hit it from the South side and ride downhill.

Great trail for what it is fast flow he single track. Lots of twists and turns easy to carry speed in tight turns. Lots of little rock features and drops we can get air or skip them if you want to. I had fun doing it alone and I had more fun doing it with my 10-year-old son definitely a great way to get from Bear Hill up to the little bear big bear combo

Favorite trail in the park. Ranges from really tight twisty singletrack to technical rocky single track. Really engaging and challenging without being over the top. Besides the stone steps I think this would be more of a heavy blue. Really great trail. A must ride if you are an intermediate or above

I rode it today. Fresh and bumpy but fun. The rock features are neutered yet so have a look if you’re feeling uneasy. Could be a good climb to access big bear.

Love this trail its smooth and fast. Some sections are a little like the Bear Brook Trail, on the edge but very smooth. ITS SICK and in my opinion a must ride.
