Wide singletrack heading straight up to the Shanahan Ridge trails.

Tom Robson

Features River/Creek · Wildlife

Description

This trail officially starts at the base of NCAR and heads south, past the Bear Canyon Trailhead. Once past the connector trail, NCAR - Bear Canyon Trail begins to climb up Bear Canyon.

Follow this wide singletrack as it winds past the NCAR - Bear Connector trail on your right and follows Bear Canyon Creek on your left. Once you're past the connector, you'll be in Bear Canyon proper - as Shanahan Ridge rises to the south, and NCAR rises to the north.

This trail terminates at an intersection with the Mesa Trail.
