From ~MP 6.5 of the Seward Highway, head up Bear Lake Rd. until it ends at Bleth St. The trail heads into the woods on the north side of the "L" intersection.

The trail winds alongside Bear Lake for a couple of miles before making a 700' climb away from the lake. From there, the trail rolls and winds back down to the Seward Highway at ~MP 12. Ride the Seward Highway south ~2/3 mile to the Divide ski area trailhead or to connect with the Iditarod National Historic Trail (INHT) - Meridian Lakes Trail. Ride from the Lost Lake Trailhead to make an all day epic loop with the Meridian Lakes Trail, Primrose Trail, and Lost Lake.
