Wide singletrack heading straight up to the Shanahan Ridge trails.

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.
