A fun and technical trail for advanced riders.

Michael Town

Overview

Generally open once the snow melts. Call Bear Valley Cross Country and Adventure Company for current conditions (209) 753-2834.

Description

This trail requires some technical skills to navigate. The narrow uphill trail features small boulders and exposed tree roots throughout. Although the trail is only moderately steep in most sections, the terrain makes for a challenging climb. The return trip is the reward...fast and fun! This is probably not a trail suited for beginners. A fairly high level of fitness is needed for the climb but can also be shuttled via the Hwy 4 Cape Horn turnout.
