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.

Decent XC, some tech spots. I'd ride it again, if I found myself in Bear Brook State Park.

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.

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

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.

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.

Boney in spots and made more difficult due to being very overgrown in places after midsummer. Fun and a few technical small spots.

Fun trail but was over-hyped imo. I liked Hemlock more.

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.
