Bear Claw Lower Details
Back in the day, Bear Claw used to be the main artery for getting into the Moonrakers from the southern end of the trail network. It is a long trail connecting from Sander Lake all the way to the Canyon, with several jump off points to other trails. Use Lower Bear Claw to climb up from Sander Lake to trails like Arrowhead, Better Than Boston, and Devil's Slide.
The lower part of Bear Claw climbs through forest, jumping onto the Tower Road trail for a brief section. Expect a continuous mild to moderate push up to the top, with a couple of short punchy sections.
Originally accessed from the old Sander Lake trailhead, can now be accessed from the new Gudjonson trailhead in Nicholson if you don't want to ride up a steep, private road. Take Sternwheeler trail to 2% to Sander Lake.
