Long Double Track up hill with some incredible views near the top. If the trail is clear of blowdown (which it is often not) there are fun sections of downhill. This trail is not well marked, there is lots of trail braiding and moto/atv use in this area so generally the single track quality isn't great.

      Trail is super dry and fire hazard is extreme. Not smokes. No fires. And of course pack out what you pack in. Bear activity is high but they did...

      Was really looking forward to this ride since we were camping at Bear Creek. The climb up the west side was a fire/4x4 road. Uneventful and no...

      The extension is still covered with windfall, though considerable progress has been made. Main trail is in good shape. Maybe four trees down that...

       Is this a black because of distance or other trail features?

       The trail is black due to the climb up. If you can ride a mountain bike on this trail you have god like skills. There is marking of small green bikes and arrows have been added if you start by the fire road access. You need to keep your head up to find them. The other side as your coming down there is next to nothing for markings but all the trails lead to the same place. Some faster then others. The trail it's self is maintained and clear even if not we'll marked.

      The initial accent along the fire access road is not to exciting. There is places to camp and an dirt bike can make the entire route. It's not a busy place and it's a long hike with good up and down. To me that is a prefect hike!
