This is a hidden gem!!!! For the people who have hiked this, please hike again, and EXPLORE!!!! There are so many side trails, we walked up on at least a 200 ft drop into the earth. One of the coolest things I have ever seen. It was just another trail till we found that. There are also old buildings in the middle of the woods. Super cool, and can't wait to go back and explore again!
Trail was nice and some parts are fairly hard on the way up. The view at the top is definitely worth it. The app said it was a loop trail but when I got to the top and over to the other side the trail markers got so confusing and I wound up doubling back up and taking the same trail back. I don't know how it could be a loop unless you have to go through the main parking lot on the way back? I didn't see anyone else there except two mountain bikers toward the end. I would do it again. As long as you have somewhat of a sense of direction you're fine without the trail markers. Oh and the "trailhead check-in" with maps and all is over by the disc golf parking lot - nowhere near the actual trailhead. Don't follow the "directions" on this app, they aren't right. Just go in the main Bear Creek entrance
Ok trail. Not marked well, so you may double back quite a bit. Scenery is fair enough but there are areas where it looks like a dumping ground. Light to moderate hike, worth a visit if you're local but I wouldn't travel far for the experience.
The Trail was nice in the start very nice and clearly marked but then we started down the other side and it was very confusing and there were so many trails you didn't know where to go. And if your gonna mountain bike ride I would suggest only the most experienced riders. If makes are available take one or take a picture of the map at the trailhead for reference if unfamiliar with the area!
this is a great 5 mile mtn bike trail loop if you like hills and rocks. very good for technical skills but definitely not good for beginner. slower pace. first 2 miles is up hill to the top of the mountain. has cut throughs and expert trail add ons.
Nice trails for a hike, not just for mountain biking.
Awesome time, but don't forget the headlamp and rope for all of the caves!
Good for an afternoon outting
