Wind your way down and around big boulders wrapped in sequoia trees. This trail will drop you off the mountain to Coy Flat and Camp Nelson. Some really steep and narrow sections to navigate, and a fast flowing section as you near the bottom.

For Bear Creek it is in good shape, two or three trees down and lots of debris on the trail. Sign down at the top of the trail and trail entrance...

 Paisagens incríveis.
Subida para acessar desafiadora e divertida.
Descida técnica, esteja consciente que se trata de uma trilha de nível Very Hard, portanto não se arrisque sem os equipamentos adequados.
No Geral vale muito.
