Great section of trail from the bridge going south. This trail has gone through a lot of changes, multiple reroutes and smoothing out. Still some sections with a bit of washed out rock or a bit steep with some tiny roots in spots, mixed with smooth and easy sandy sections.

       Fun and fast and very popular with hikers heading to/from the Bear Cyn bridge. Other than the traffic, should likely be rated green, not black

       This trail used to be really hard with lots of loose rock and was fun to try to not dab. I heard it was castrated, say it isn't so?

       Edit: should be blue, not black. The Bear Cyn bridge and a couple other route changes in the last couple years have made this section of the BST much more rideable

       Bear canyon itself caused me to ride elsewhere since I got tired of hike a bike. Now hidden valley is a regular trailhead for me. There are one or two other changes as well, but the old trails still exist if u want to make a go at it. The whole thing is still fairly technical and keeps away the riff raff.
