The Bear Wallow trail as shown here includes an extremely rocky hike-a-bike uphill prior to the lengthy downhill. The downhill portion is sometimes called the "31 Flavors Descent." The descent is also accessible by following the Signal Knob Trail to the Meneka Peak Trail. The downhill begins with a number of significant rock features and remains relatively rocky for the upper portion of the descent before smoothing out on the lower portion.
