Two Loops: one on Bear and one on Red. I rode Bear first, but you could do Red first as it is a little more technical. Advise cutting out Merv's on BEar and instead riding Smoking Bobo at the the end of Lorax and then climbing back up the road BR SA 100 to Bear Back (note: Lorax appears as a straight line on this map as my GPS was not functioning on this trail). Also note: BAre Buns is the climbing trail at the top of BTLC. A new trail as of Oct. 2015.
