A fun trail with a worthwhile view at the top. After turning off of the main south fork trail, climb up the bear creek trail for about 2 miles. It's steep and rocky in a few places but all the hard work pays off once you turn around for the descent. The top section is very flowy with some sharp switchbacks so watch out for motorcycles and other trail users.
