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.

Trail Chipmunk
Rose this in the recommended directio(green dot to red square) and was a technical ride with lots of rocks and roots. Very hard to keep a decent flow as you are climbing a lot with plenty of roots and rocks to slow you down/make you get off and walk. Agree with other posters this should be black not blue

I notice someone down-voted your comment suggesting this trail should be black same as they did for mine from 2 years ago. It would be nice if that person could share why they disagree with our suggestion!

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.

Probably my favorite trail in the park. It’s a weird mix of double single track with lots of rocks and roots you can jump and drop off of. Don’t skip the last section of the trail, it’s very fast and very gnarly.

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.

Trail Chipmunk
If Hemlock and Broken Boulder are blues then the southern half of Chipmunk should be a black.

riding north to south, begins as chunky rooted doubletrack with a long rock garden shortly after the cemetery. slow going on a hardtail, but kind of a fun challenge.

as other comments mention, definitely on the tough/technical end for a blue at this park.

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

Very techy for Bear Brook. Classic rock and root narrow singletrack. I rode it south to north and it was a climb for the most part. Hard to keep flow, as it is tight and the rocks and roots are numerous, though no feature is excessively hard the trail give you a bit of a beating when you run it south to north.

On some parts it should definitely be a black and not a blue. Won’t do that one again.

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.
