Trail shared by Matt Stephenson

Non-technical climbs and flowing descents mixed with some small rock gardens and high-speed trail.

Description

Take a left from Bearberry and enjoy the very fast, smooth gravel downhill to cross the Buffalo Creek. Depending on rain, you might have a foot of water to cross.

From the creek, prepare for a steep, loose rock climb. The trail is very wide allowing for many lines up the hill, but none may dodge the loose rocks.

Once at the top, enjoy some more flowing downhill with some flowing up/down sections that turn into slower, more rocky and technical downhill. The trail runs into two forest service cabins which mark the end of the singletrack. Past the cabins, there is a little bit of fast smooth downhill trail where you need to fork left over the bridge at the creek. Slightly past the bridge, it is treadmill uphill on a smooth trail until you return back onto Bearberry.

Overall, the difficult loose rock climb allows for some great fast downhill sections with enjoyable technical sections. Then a treadmill climb for a bit back to the main loop. A really fun "bonus" to the whole loop.

Slogging loose rock uphill slightly redeemed by a fun section in the back. Ride clockwise.

A singletrack section in the middle. Clockwise to descend it (fun stuff!), leaving two climbs, the first very loose/steep, the second smooth gravel.
