  • Global Ranking

This trail would be given an intermediate rating in most other trail networks. The beginner/green rating it has been given is relative to South March Highlands, not relative to trails in general.

If you are a beginner, suggest you start with the Western Greenbelt Trails in the general vicinity of West Hunt Club and Moodie Drive and also Gatineau Park. Maps for both are available from the National Capital Commission.

If I haven't scared you off... Bear Tree is flat, with rocks, roots, rough rock armouring, and narrow sections. It's generally very muddy in the spring and after significant rainfall. It's not a remarkably fun or challenging trail, but as a means to getting to the more challenging and fun inner network of trails (Dogsled, PWT, etc), it is more enjoyable and less rocky to ride than the alternative: Rockhopper.

In the winter, it's the first trail to be fatbike-ridable, and also the first trail to ice-up.
