Bear Tree Chute

Average Rating:    (0 of 5)


Bear Tree Chute is an old trail discovered after looking through forum posts in excess of a decade old. The trail starts as a fire road located at the parking area across the street from an ATV parking lot. Enter the trail head by biking past the gate and make your way to the top of the ridge. There are times when it is very steep, but coupled with the nice views and relatively good terrain, the ride is quite pleasant.

When you arrive at the top of the fire road, a single track splits off slightly to the left and continues along the top of the ridge for what is a quick but fairly technical section. This lasts until you get to the cut-out for the high tension power lines crossing the valley. At this point, lower your seat, lower your tire pressure, and proceed cautiously to the last downhill. The descent is brutally steep, which rocks, the occasional log, and plenty of briars to make it a memorable trip.

Your total descent in .48 miles totals out to 898 feet.

It is important to note that should you decide to pursue this trail in its entirety, you MUST do so when it is completely dry. On our recent trip, I measured both uphill and downhill grades- the max uphill grade was ~30%, and the maximum downhill grade was exactly 41%.

To complete this loop, turn left when you break out onto the road and ride two miles to your parked vehicle.
