A major fire raged through the Bear Creek drainage in 1971. Since then, the chaparral cover on the mountain slopes has grown back as vigorous as ever. On the lush canyon bottom, bigcone Douglas-fir, white alder, and canyon live oak protect the bubbling creek and its grassy banks from the sun’s harshness. Merging with Bear Creek just across from where the trail reaches canyon bottom is beautiful, woodsy Siberia Creek, probably the most delightful sylvan recess in the San Bernardinos outside of the San Gorgonio Wilderness. The little singing stream, shaded by an overarching canopy of green, is a favorite of hikers, campers, and fishermen alike. Here, smack in the middle of the overused San Bernardinos, nature reveals her quiet, pristine best.
