UPDATE! November 2017: Bear Creek has been cleared - awesome riding now! Seasonably dry and loose soil.

Unfortunately, a small group of local hikers are illegally trying to shut down the trail by moving logs into the 2 main trail intersections, removing trail signs and replacing with "trail closed" signs, and physically wiping out the bike tracks, etc. This is an official multi-use USFS-designated bike trail. Please remove any obstructions you may find.
