Comments
Comments: Nice loop checking out an unofficial trail, Bear Pass Trail. Trails were wet from recent rains and the sun was slow to show. Ledges were slippery in spots. Bear Pass Trail was great! A nice alternative to the BRT between Major and Straightback. Fairly easy to find from the JVBP Trail. Nice views from a somewhat quiet Mt Major.
