Bear Creek Trail

Note: all info and pictures are from before the Castle Fire.


The Bear Creek Trail begins just outside of Camp Nelson. More challenging than the Nelson Trail, the Bear Creek Trail ends at the top of McIntyre Grove and offers a close-up look at enormous Giant Sequoias. Round trip, the trail is approximately 6 miles. The trail is accessible both by foot and mountain bike.
