Bear Bottom Loop is mostly machine-cut singletrack and mostly follows the countour, which gives it a pretty nice flow. Like most trails in the park, it is not particularly technical.

Access Info

The trail can be accessed from the horse trailer parking area, or by Culler's Trail or Big Oak Trail.

       Rode May 16, 2020, great dry nontechnical trails with climbing. Parking by the river can accommodate 20 cars plus overflow for off road vehicles only. A river swim after is a bonus! Highly recommend for a travel day stop.
