This loop begins with a three-mile ascent on a gravel road. This climb is evenly divided between easy, moderately difficult, and strenuous pedaling. This leg is followed by 2.3 miles of pavement along a rolling ridge. Back on gravel, you descend for a mile, climb moderately for .2 mile, and then enjoy a three-mile grin-inducing drop along Bear Creek. The scenery on this ride varies from beautiful green forests and lovely creeks to scarred mountains with massive clear-cuts. This ride begins approximately 12 miles east of the coastal community of Waldport.

The Bear creek section of the trail is still there. It is now an abandoned forest road. The best way to ride it at this point is with a gps. A group of riders from this area is going to work on the Bear Crk section to clear it out and work on making some of the washouts easier to cross. The rest of the loop is a combination of gravel & asphalt. There are some awesome views!!
