Description

Access this moderate and fun trail after riding the switchbacks that are "Bear Den Loop - A short easy singletrack loop. Or cheat and follow Marina Ln uphill for a few hundred feet and cut into the trees as soon as you see the first metal gates slightly in the woods on the left side of the road.

Follow the track to the right and parallel Marina Ln through several fun natural drains for almost the entirety of the road until it turns uphill at a small cemetery and begins to loop around. The bike path parallels the lower entry section (and road again) higher on the hill until you finally rejoin the return path for Bear Den Loop - A short easy singletrack loop.

About half a mile before that, you have the option to turn right and go uphill on Grizzly Bear for an extra nine miles.

Do this trail in reverse (no restrictions as far as I can tell) for more intense climbing on the front end and more downhill on average over the length.
