A new, well-maintained singletrack with big bermed corners and several optional features to put some air under your tires! This one is best ridden from east to west to take advantage of gravity and features.

From the south trailhead at Matanuska Lakes, head east and take Long Lake Loop around the east side of the lake, then right onto the Old Cat Trail and a quick left onto Bearberry Bluff.
