Bear Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Visitors to Bear Creek Regional Park can enjoy an exploratory hike or an easy saunter through the variety of ecosystems blanketing the foothills of Pikes Peak. Four diverse trails wind through the park’s 1235 acres, enabling almost every hiker to claim, “I saw a hawk!” (or deer, hummingbird, fox squirrel, or towhee . . . )."
