At the top of Reno Divide, ride through the gate and straight ahead onto the marked Flag Creek singletrack. CBMBA and the Forest Service recently reworked this smooth section of trail, so get ready for one of the best downhill runs anywhere. After three miles you'll cross a compacted gravel "bridge." Shortly after this you'll enter the dark timber where there is a right turn marking the Bear Creek.
