Lair O' the Bear
by lojones5

Warning
Bear Creek Trail is multi-use and a popular mountain biking trail of intermediate difficulty, so be aware of bikers.


Overview
Bear Creek Trail is a multi-use trail that crosses through multiple parks and jurisdictions including Lair o' the Bear Park, Little Park, Corwina Park, O'Fallon Park, and Pence Park. Lair o' the Bear Park is managed by Jefferson Open County Space while the four other parks are managed by Denver Mountain Parks.

Bear Creek Trail is the main trail connecting these parks and stretches about 7 miles starting by following along Bear Creek, then climbing in elevation through O'Fallon Park and offering excellent views into the mountains. It is highly recommended and popular among hikers to take the short hiking-only side trail to Panorama Peak reaching an elevation of 7361 feet and a great spot to stop for lunch with a view.
