  • If just visiting, the hiking is great. It is right along a river and mostly flat. Various trails with shade. If you are from sea level, this park is good starting point....about 5800 feet. Enjoy!  more »
  • Several hiking trails, some are flat and follow the creek while one trail climbs up a bluff (easy to moderate) and is a bit rocky and narrow in places. Good family hikes, not too strenuous. Lots of.....  more »

  • This area is great for short walks or hiking into the mountains. The main walkway is 1-1/3 mile and parallels Bear Creek heading West. It takes you buy an old Castle and some beautiful scenery. We enjoy bringing our dogs, and they love getting into the water for a swim. Very relaxed park, trail shared with bicyclists, so watch your back as sometimes they don't let you know their behind you. Most often they are very courteous. Only one area not far from the start, where trail is very narrow and twisted so you have to watch out for others coming in the other direction.
  • The Bear Creek trail has excellent shade and good elevation gain with a few interesting rocky spots for a change of pace. The parking lot fills up quickly on weekends, and there is very limited rogue overflow parking on the main road. I'd suggest arriving by 9 in the summer. Great option for hiking, running, and mountain biking. There is a lot of signage encouraging bikes to yield, and we had good experiences as hikers. If you are going to ride, consider a bell, especially a continuous one like the TimberBell.
