Description

From the trailhead, go up the Chicken Creek Trail for a few hundred feet and bear right. Black Bear Trail follows an old road to the northeast, gradually rising. This is a pleasant, easy trail which then curves back to the southeast through large ponderosas with an oak understory. The trail descends a steep loose section before reconnecting with the Chicken Creek Trail.
