Description

This trail starts from the end of Mountain Cove Road in Military Reserve Park, and connects all the way to Rocky Canyon Road.

The name "Three Bears" supposedly comes from a description of the 3 sustained and steep climbs that are found on this trail. It's all ride-able in both directions, but you'd better have your legs and lungs on board for the way up!

There are enough rocks to keep this trail interesting, but not much that you can't just roll right over.

As with most of the trails in the lower foothills, get an early start if it's going to be a hot day, as there isn't much shade.
