Bear River State Park

By mikewyoboy in May, 2012

This is a great trail for the family. Right next to the rest area, several rest area facilities in the park and a great place to get out and stretch your legs. A nice easy walk through the woods, with several different options. Stick with the paved trail or go further south and take some of the dirt trails back through the Cottonwoods. They have Buffalo and Elk viewing areas and wildlife throughout the trail along the river. Moose really like this area too, so just keep an eye open while enjoying the sites. The trail is great for biking and I heard the are looking at extending some of the Mountain Bike Trails as well. This area also has a place to drop a kayak in the river and take in some of the rapids that have been placed along the way. Overall this area has a lot to offer in such a small area.

Bear River State Park & Bear Parkway

Trail extends under I-80 as the Bear Parkway, into Evanston. Also east up to the Visitor Center and Bison viewing area. If you ride all the hard surface & dirt trails from the parking lot and return it will be about 8 miles. Great views. Some loose river gravel spots on the dirt trails. Worth a stop if you are in the area. N41.26516 W110.93876 elev 6790’. By Noel Keller 7 Aug 08
