Black Bear Trail is not a loop, it is an out and back trail that can be made into a loop by branching off onto a series of other trails. Specifically you can start on black bear (#13)and then branch off onto homestead trail (#12) and then onto Revenuers Ridge (#1) approximately 2.5 miles total. The hike is easy and wide, with an uphill section about 3/4 of the way in. My 6 year old hiked the whole trail with ease and my 2 year old did most of it on foot as well. A carrying pack should be used to do this trail if hiking with young children as trail 1 is not wide enough for an off road stroller. Super beautiful with lots of flowers and views and changes in terrain! $7 dollar car entry fee too!
