Trail Description
About this trail
Head down the trail to the first major obstacle which are the Three fingers of Death. The left finger is the easiest while the right finger is the hardest. The drops are not as bad as they look. The trail is easy to follow have fun it is a blast. Fun fast hard pack with a few drops that you can roll down or jump. The BMX section is a blast a great to practice pumping for speed on the backsides and catching air on the frontsides.

Review: this trail is a pretty a easy climb to the top and the climb pays off for the downhill. the downhill can be kind of techy for beginners. But u can just walk the techy parts and ride the awesome flowy jumps that you can also roll over and pump them. Also there is zen trail right by bear claw poppy which is a very technical trail for advanced riders. The top of bear claw has the three fingers of death which is for people to practice there drops but there is a trail around the three fingers of death for beginners. Finally on the trail of bear claw poppy there is alternate routs for more skilled riders. Overall bear claw poppy is an amazing trail.

Review: Road up the left side (one way up), then up Stuckl Cutoff, then back down Jay's Wash, and then crossed back over and down the Bearclaw Poppy (one way down). Both Jay's Wash and the Poppy down were great (Poppy down "green" trail was pretty bumped up; the blue side trails were much smoother) All were very flowy, and great fun. Gradual climb up, gradual downs so didn't need much breaking. Strongly recommend.

Review: This trail is a blast. Great place to practice your drops on the "Fingers of Death". About 7 miles round trip from south trailhead at Navajo Dr.

Review: This is a great trail to bring the whole family on . . . or even to just ride yourself. It is close to town and can be ridden as an out and back or round trip. Out and back is best to eliminate driving and take advantage of the fact that their are many different options, all of which go to the same place, on the southern point of the trail. Also, it says double track on there but this is single track all the way.

Review: Like everyone is saying it's got a nice rollarcoaster flowy feel. Fun to try and catch a bit of air off small bumps and lips. If you want to get your adrenaline up do 3 fingers of death and clavicle hill above. This trail is not very fun when wet. It becomes too slow and you can't get your speed up.
