Bear Creek Mountain Trail

Bear Creek Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"After the first mile, you’ll climb relentlessly, for much of the way in dense forests with few or no views. But the payoff for this thigh-burning, lung-tearing workout: incredible vistas from atop one of the highest peaks on the easternmost flank of the Goat Rocks."

"What do you think you’d find on a trail bearing this name? Bears? Possibly, as the bruins prowl all these forests, and the long huckleberry fields are a big draw for black bears. Creeks? A few small ones. Mountain? Yes, a steep-sided mountain. The route climbs from the Tieton Valley through a long, unbroken forest.

Indeed, after the first mile, you’ll climb relentlessly, much of the way in dense forests. Be sure to carry plenty of water for you and your dog, as the trail is mostly dry once you start the long ascent. Fortunately, the forest canopy will provide cool shade, but it also blocks your views until you near the top. The payoff for this thighburning, lung-tearing workout? Incredible views from atop one of the highest peaks on the easternmost flank of the Goat Rocks."

Beautiful hike for the first 3/4 of the trail. Traversing through meadows and dense trees. Bugs are what you would expect. The last 1/4 of the trail is brutal if your not a seasoned hiker. Some snow but not bad. The view is awesome but it is a hike for veterans not for beginners. Glad I made it but won’t be making the trek again.
