Bear Creek Nature Center
Hike the foothills, search for mule deer, and discover Bear Creek! Scrub oak thicket, ponderosa pine forests, meadows, a mountain creek, and abundant foothills wildlife attract children and adults to Bear Creek Regional Park and Nature Center. Interpretive programs, special events, guided and self-guided tours, media presentations are offered all year. Visit the interactive, hands-on exhibits available in the nature center before you walk the trails.
Outside, two miles of self-guiding nature trails wind through the short grass prairie, scrub oak woodlands and cottonwood riparian communities. The nature trails are for "foot traffic only" and pets are prohibited. The regional trails are open to hiking, horseback riding, and pets on a leash.
