Bear Creek Trail

Bear Creek Trail is located in the floodplain of the Missouri River and is a good example of fairly common second-growth bottomland forest. It connects to Bear Creek and Missouri River and there are drop-offs at points along the trail. Many kinds of wildlife, including migratory songbirds, are commonly seen. The trail is accessed by crossing the Weston Bluffs Trail and the Burlington Northern Railway tracks. Caution should always be exercised in accessing this trail. The trail surface is natural surface, with occasional stones and tree roots in the trail walkway. The area is subject to standing water in the roadway as well as occasional flood events from the Missouri River.
