      The Bear Creek Trail System is over 8 miles of trails located along scenic Bear and Cabin Creeks.

      Map kiosks at intersections and the main trail heads provide info on different loop hikes, distances and difficulty. These kiosks are marked on the TrailForks map as well.

      Start your hike at the Elise or Water Plant Trail Heads.
      Follow the "Super Loop" arrows for a 6.5 mile hike involving most trails in the system.
      The Elise Trail Head is located at the end of NW Broad St. near the bus parking area at Elise Middle School.
