Keep cool with a shady hike on the Bear Creek Trail above Briones Reservoir. As we walk, we’ll share some nature tidbits about the native trees and shrubs we see along the trail and learn the fate of the poor bear for whom the creek is named.

The hills to the west, once threatened with development, were preserved for future generations in one of Greenbelt Alliance’s earliest open space campaign victories. This is a one-way hike with a car shuttle.
