Bear Trap Basin Details
Bust out your enduro bike because for this ride you are going to need a bike that can descend the extremely rough terrain going into the basin, but also a bike that climbs well to get out. This is one of the more challenging rides in Bear Valley and NOT RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS.
It heads along mostly doubletrack jeep roads, but going into the basin is a super rough, rocky, and rutted out doubletrack. About half way through this ride, you'll come across a cabin in a beautiful meadow owned by the USFS. You can stay the night here if you want to make it a pack in/pack out mountain bike adventure. The ride out is pretty steady doubletrack that turns left onto a singletrack. Follow it about a mile to connect to the Elusive Trail and Corral Hollow OHV Trail back to town.
Need to Know
Bring plenty of water and snacks. This is a backcountry ride that can take up to three hours to complete. A basic first aid kit is a good idea because this loop takes you pretty far out of town.
