Bear Creek Trail (# 66) is a short trail with a trailhead located just off FR 24 near the intersection of FR 24 and Bear Creek. It ends at a junction with the Black River Mainstream Trail (# 61), providing access to that trail to areas along it's middle section.

The trail takes you through mature stands of Ponderosa and Douglas-fir to the willows along the banks of the cool, clear Black River.

Remember to tread lightly near streambanks to prevent erosion and sedimentation of the sensitive stream environment.

This trail is only 1.5 miles round trip and is over moderate terrain. Be careful as poison ivy is abundant along many parts of the trail.
