Mama Bear is the middle option of the stacked loop system at Cold Water Mountain. Ridden clockwise, the trail offers of plenty of swoops, berms and bends, making it a must-ride.

The first part of Mama Bear is a descent that will make you grin from ear to ear. It will also give you a feel for smooth, non-technical trails at speed.

The second part of the trail is a gradual climb that traverses low angle hillsides, winding its way back up and around connecting with Papa Bear and eventually Baby Bear.
