This is Bear Valley's newest multi-use trail that has a nice flow and grade from bottom to top, or top to bottom, whichever direction you choose to ride it. Due to the fact that this is a multi-use trail with moderate traffic please be respectful to the other trail users. The trail can be accessed from the east side of the Bear Valley - Alpine Lake Trail parking area.

This trail is the gateway to many Bear Valley riding adventures that start in the Bear Valley Village and head out to over 100 miles of singletrack in the area. Just to the east is the Lake Alpine General Store and Restaurant. Bear Valley also has a general store. If you are in need of bike rentals, parts or advise, head to the gas station / Bear Valley Adventure Center.
