After climbing the Sugar Mountain trail, I now get ride Bear Claw in the down direction. Quite a few switchbacks and if you look at the trail on a map, all the switchbacks make an image of a bear claw. So going downhill on this trail is fun however this trail will be quite a uphill climb. Will be doing it in that direction soon.
