Rather remote and solitary trail. I was one of only two bikers on this trail when I biked it.

It starts with a long steady climb (not technical) until you reach Reno Divide. Then some rewarding singletrack down, but you will pay for the descent. Bear Trail is one long climb on a singletrack. Technical enough to kick my butt (especially when combined with the climb). Climb continues on Deadman Trail for a while, testing me all the way to the top--and then fast and fun switchbacks all the way down. Last obstacle between me and my car was Cement Creek (which I ended up stepping into :))
