This trail, which can be used as an alternate for some of the more difficult parts of the Beaver Dam Trail, is also a good choice for the beginner as it is wide and the hills, except for the one just east of Bearskin Lodge, are gentle.
This trail is a popular short loop which follows an old ox-cart trail used in the early 1900’s. It leads you through low-land beaver ponds and alder swamps and along ridges of highland pine forest.
Expert skiers will put their skills to the test on Bear Cubs loops. Groomed for both skating and diagonal stride, this trail features very challenging uphill and screaming downhills. Towering white pines greet you as you travel to the Bear Cub Lake overlook at an elevation of 2000ft.
