Bear Lake to Spring
Creek Hike


Thu, Jul. 19, 2018 10:00am — 2:30pm

Hosted by the Cuchara Valley Recreation Program.

After meeting at the Cuchara Community Hall, we circle up at the parking lot to the Indian Trail in the Bear Lake campground. Our hike begins with a good uphill climb to the ridge above Bear Lake. The nice thing about this hike is that once to the top of this ridge, the trail is 80% downhill! We drop about 1,000 feet in elevation from that ridge line to the trail′s end at Spring Creek picnic area. Our walk will take us through Engleman Spruce forests, Aspen groves, over Baker Creek several times, through Scrub Oak tangles, and open meadows.
