Bruin Bluff / Lair of the Bear

Easy walk along the water for mile or so then it connects to more of a hike up for a few miles that lots of mountain bikers take. It is right next to a main road so even when you start your climb up its close to the sounds of the road. Lair o Bear is a great place for a picnic with a family and an easy stroll if you dont want to take the trail that goes up higher. Continue on past the trail that leads up (all the mountain bikers take) and you will reach a fun "beach" area for the dogs to play!

I really like this trail. It pretty easy to follow. Today was a good day, I did find parking off the street. in the parking lot. You need to be pretty early. by 11:00am the lot was full. LOts of people, but not so many that you felt overwhelmed by people on the trail. The one issue is ALL of the POO bags for people's dogs. While this trail has no trash cans you are suppose to pack OUT what to take in. That should go for the POO BAGS, It's hanging in trees and all along the trail. GROSS people. Would you do that in your own yard?? If you seriously don't want to take your doggy's poo bags back to your own vehicle do bring them or take them off away from the trail.

Moderately difficult trail (was backpacking in to camp) great views. Could be better marked. Was starting to get crowded Saturday morning.

Beautiful hiking country. I would say most of the hike is pretty easy. The lower Evergreen Mountain Trail gets a bit more difficult, but still pretty easy...

Fix the trail markers. It's not clearly marked. As other reviewers have done in the past we ended up getting off trail w signs that literally just said "trail" but ended up being the wrong way. Bring your compass..
