Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The trails at Lair o’ the Bear Park weave around and above Bear Creek, encouraging hikers of all ages and abilities to discover the plant and animal bounty of this riparian zone.

Numerous songbirds add a melodic background to the hiking, fishing, and picnicking opportunities in the park. The wheelchair-accessible fishing dock, located just 50 yards from the trailhead, overlooks a broad, clear span of water, perfect for spotting the creek’s trout, minnows, suckers, and longnose dace."

Always an enjoyable trail with the kids... Bear Creek is starting to flow stronger as we enter spring.

Good little ride with some decent technical spots. You can tie into to the Falcon trail and make a great ride out of it.
