Gear Grinder is a bi-directional single track that runs south to north, and is a connector trail which avoids an adjacent double track. The trail is gently downhill when ridden from south to north, and is generally smooth. Gear Grinder intersects Bear Scat and Lone Pine on the south and the double track (unnamed) and Gear Grinder - East on the north.
