“Very technical and rocky singletrack around the Bear Creek Ski Mountain.”— Kurt Kanaskie
Be warned, they are very rocky on the West side of the mountain.
This trail winds through a disc golf course near the end.
Bear left (pun intended) near the top by the ramp feature and proceed clockwise (this is easy to miss) looping around to almost where you headed left.
Continue climbing on switchbacks, following the White #1 markers. Notice the stone ruins on left as you continue climbing towards the summit.
Near the ski trail, there is a left turn that climbs straight to the top, doable in low gear but a real grind!
At the top, take in the view and head left, into woods, for the first part of the descent. This is a very technical downhill that requires pedaling to maneuver around rocks. Look out for switchbacks so you can set up for the turn without dabbing. Stay true to the White #1 markers as other trails cross your path.
Once you think you've made it down, the trail loops back up for more technical, rocky downs.
At the bottom, within the disc golf course, maintain a clockwise loop to finish on the South side of the pond. Bear left and look for the final section on your left that will take you back to the parking lot.
Don't forget to use you gift certificate for some beers in the bar!
