This time turn left at the Moonraker (#28)/Bear Claw (#21) junction onto Bear Claw (#21) and follow it back to the Bear Claw (#21)/North Star (#16) junction (note: en route you will pass the beginning of Dam Bypass (#23) and also the north entrance of Moonraker Trail (#28)). At the Bear Claw (#21)/North Star (#16) junction follow straight through on North Star (#16) for 100m and then turn right onto Better than Boston (#19). Follow Better than Boston back (#16) to Arrowhead (#12). Take Arrowhead (#12) north (ie. follow the sign “to Arrowhead” up the hill) and stay on Arrowhead (#12) until branching left onto Barking Dog (#18). A quick speed decent on Barking Dog (#18) past Cedar Lake 2 brings you to the junction of Cedar Camp (#15). Go for a swim at Second Cedar Lake off of the gravel point, then ride the Cedar Camp (#15) trail back to either the Cedar Lake Trailhead or onward to CBT Mainline (#1) and back to the valley bottom and town.
