“A great hike on smooth trails.”— Mr Singleton
This can be a great hike if you need to rest your legs but still want to get outside to enjoy the trail. This hike only has two small category four climbs.
The route begins near the entrance of Bear Creek Park. Take the first right after passing the Toll Boot and parking will be on your right. To start your hike, cross back over the road heading east and you'll quickly see signs for the Mount Carbon Trail.
