Mountain Biking Bear Creek

****   Add a review
#77 of 301 mountain bike trails in Idaho
#3717 in the world

For the first few miles you have a choice of either a high or low road. You can wade through the creek on the low road or take the high road and avoid getting wet. The high road is more fun as it has more ups and downs. There are numerous trails that break off of the Bear Creek trail providing numerous lolly-pop loop options. This area has some great potential, but is rarely ridden (more of a dirt bike destination). If you're looking to explore and have an adventure consider this trail.

Getting there
Cross the bridge below the dam and follow the road. Signs will direct you to Bear Creek campground. When you get to the campground itself, you hit a fork in the road. You want to go to the right. You'll come to a place where you can park. The trailhead is right there where the road ends. You can actually take it about as far as you would like. Trails go on forever from here.

    This really was a good trail. It seems to me that it connected to a network in here somewhere. Also, it's not far from some other great hiking/biking trails. Grab a map, they're all over the place.
