Long moderate climb, or fun descent, connecting the AZ Trail to upper Mount Elden

Almonzo Wilder

Description

Little Bear is a well graded trail that gently, but relentlessly, climbs up the slopes of Mount Elden. Much of the trail passes through an area badly burned by the 2010 Schultz Fire. This makes for interesting views, but the trail can get hot. A nice descent route any time of day.
