Description

This trail starts at Black Bear Pass and somewhat parallels The Terminator to link back with Mule Mountain Trail.

The first quarter mile is fast and smooth, except for the odd rock outcropping - you'll come to a bunch of rocks that have been put in the middle of the trail, I assume to slow you down. After you go around them, the trail starts to toughen up a little and that leads you into the first switchback. For the most part after that, the trail is pretty smooth and fast between the switchbacks.

After the last switchback you'll have a very fast section right up until you link back to the Mule Mountain Trail.
