Not for Beginners IMO, especially if on an eBike. This is a very narrow loose dirt trails full of steep switchbacks with some dangerous side trail drop-offs. 20-30% Grades with a couple 70% Grades (albeit Short Climbs). There are also some sections with a bit of overgrown sage brush. If this trail could be widened, it would be a very different experience.

I liked this trail; it has a different feel than the rest of the Draper area trails. It is narrow and when I rode it the biggest challenge was keeping my handle bars straight I my hands were being pummeled by sage brush (I thought that made it more fun). People who like skinny trails will like this trail.

Was a bit overgrown as of today. Fairly boring straight trail with steep shoulders. Would skip it and do other trails in the area in the future.

Bear canyon itself caused me to ride elsewhere since I got tired of hike a bike. Now hidden valley is a regular trailhead for me. There are one or two other changes as well, but the old trails still exist if u want to make a go at it. The whole thing is still fairly technical and keeps away the riff raff.

Edit: should be blue, not black. The Bear Cyn bridge and a couple other route changes in the last couple years have made this section of the BST much more rideable

This trail used to be really hard with lots of loose rock and was fun to try to not dab. I heard it was castrated, say it isn't so?

Fun and fast and very popular with hikers heading to/from the Bear Cyn bridge. Other than the traffic, should likely be rated green, not black

One of the few trails in the area that hasn't been "improved" to be 6 feet wide and free of obstacles.

This is a heavily hiked trail, it runs through a lot of backyards so watch your speed and always be prepared to come up on hikers.

Beware, almost every time I ride this trail there are people hiking their dogs off leash. Usually of the small ankle-biting rat dog variety that you don't see until you're almost on top of. Dangerous trail to take at a fun speed unfortunately.
