This is a very easy crushed asphalt trail that gently ascends past a small pond and through a valley of mostly Oak trees at Great Bear Ski area. This quiet out and back trail gently ascends an Oak tree filled valley with benches along the way. It begins by going along a picturesque pond and then crossing the usually dry creek bed via a footbridge. There is a covered bench at the furthest point of the trail where you turn around.

Very Easy short trail. Is a nice quiet trail with a very picturesque pond and footbridge. Saw wild turkeys and signs of other wildlife. @backpackerneil
