“This trail has great flowing, winding and rocky singletrack.”

Although the GPS track starts from a small paved access area, many find it best to park at RC Willeys up the road to avoid problems with the landowner. The first mile is paved, drops into a dry water detention basin, then the singletrack begins for a great 10 mile loop.

There are a variety of options in this trail network with more springing up lately. Some of these dead end and some are shortcuts. There are no other names that I could find for these variations. You can't really go wrong...it's all fun!

**UPDATE** The word is out....the property this ride resides on is being looked at for development. The most prestigious housing development to date in Las Vegas is being planned for this land. So get down on it while it's still there!!
Need To Know
Please do not drive your vehicle into the paved access road. This area is restricted.
Bears Best is located in Summerlin, west of Las Vegas off the 215 Beltway and Town Center Blvd. The trail begins with about a mile of paved access road followed to a dirt road to the west the ends at a water detention basin. Sail down the cement basin to a singletrack trail on the other side.

From here there is a section of BMX like flowing turns. A few shortcuts have developed - try to avoid these to get the full ride. The builders of this trail did an excellent job using the natural terrain to its advantage and getting the most trail in the space available. There are a lot of small fun rocky obstacles and smooth flowing trail as well. Enjoy!
