“The most technical of the three bears with lots of optional rock features.
— Leslie Kehmeier
If Mama Bear
brings the flow, then Papa Bear brings it too, plus a little more.
As one of the Three Bear loops, Papa Bear is the furthest out from the Cold Spring trailhead and provides the most challenge. With some of the same twisty flow similar to Mama Bear
, Papa Bear does it in a tighter corridor with more frequent swoops and turns. For added measure, there are several optional rock features that blend nicely with the trail.
Papa Bear is ridden clockwise and can be paired with other trails to create different rides. It connects with Mama Bear
on the west side and Bomb Dog
on the east side.
