Mountain Biking Bear

Bear is an undulating trail that rolls and dips and eventually climbs to the top of the Deadman Gulch trail. Despite being a moto trail, it's relatively smooth, and very scenic.

    Reno/Flag/Bear/Deadman has been mostly ruined by motorcycles. Still, the Bear decent remains a gem in the loop and is still a blast.

    Great, flowing trail with good views providing access to Deadman's.
