The Bear Creek Trail is a long trail that branches into three drainages which emerge from the Bitterroots—the South Fork, Middle Fork, and North Fork. This hike follows the lower main drainage to a gorgeous waterfall a half mile shy of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness. The easy, well-defined path lies nestled between the forest, the steep canyon walls, and the creek, making a gradual ascent. The hike leads past pools in the smooth rock to Bear Creek Falls, which forms whirlpools, cascades, and water slides over a series of boulders. Terraced rock slabs offer flat areas for picnicking, sunbathing, and viewing the rocky cliffs. For a longer hike, trails continue up the three drainages to high alpine lakes atop the Bitterroot Range on the Montana-Idaho border
