Description

The Bear Creek Overlook Trail has quite a few switchbacks as it makes it way up the mountain. You'll be surrounded by pine trees the entire run, but when you get to the overlook you'll be standing on top of a 500 foot cliff with 180-degree view of the mountains and the valley below! Absolutely stunning!

Flora & Fauna

You'll be surrounded by pine trees and could possibly see many different kinds of wildlife such as birds, deer, bears and more.
