A pleasant little pedal in the middle of nowhere. If you are climbing (heading north), you will spill out on a 2-track. Follow this down and left and you will stumble upon Slabs. If the rocks of Slabs aren't your thing, follow the 2-track (Turnbull Creek Trail) down until Fred.

Access Info

While descending Black Bear, you will be 'finishing' on some rock slab 'steps' and the trail will turn to soils. There is a tree just to your right immediately before you spill into a gully. This is the south tip of Bear.
