Overview

Features: River/Creek

Description

This trail got its name from the many encounters with grizzly bears that the pioneers had along the creek. The trail follows Bear Creek up an easy grade for about 4.5 miles before it branches off and begins ascending a gully. At mile 7, the trail reaches a saddle and a junction with a trail that connects San Gabriel Canyon Road with Smith Mountain. From here, the trail descends a little before ending at Highway 39.

Thanks to John McKinney, The Trailmaster, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about trails in California, check out his guides at The Trailmaster Store.
