       I hate this trail. I love the Bike Park but this is probably the most worthless trail on the mountain.

      It doesn't matter if you start at McCoy or at Off the Top, you will be climbing most of the way. At the end of the summer I was able to do all the climbs on this trail which was quite an accomplishment, but this trail is so easily avoidable. I think Bearing Straits doesn't get the love it deserves because it requires riding Gravy Train to get there if you want to ride it downhill.
