Description Suggest an Edit

The Bear Creek Bikeway parallels scenic Bear Creek just north of downtown Merced. The path grants access to the zoo at Applegate Park and amenities located within the park. On the trail's western end, a short rail-with-trail stretch connects trail users with the Black Rascal Creek Bikeway, which parallels the smaller waterway farther north.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Bear Creek Bikeway is available at Applegate Park on P Street or at the eastern trailhead on S. Bear Creek Drive, just east of McKee Road.
