Bear Creek Trail (CA) Description

The Bear Creek Trail is an 8 mile-long paved trail in Stockton, California. The trail has connections to neighborhoods as well as parks and schools.

The trail begins on Lower Sarcamento Road adjoining Bear Creek and starts heading west. About a block past its David Road crossing, the trail makes a sharp turn along the east edge of Bear Creek as it curves up towards Davis Road. There the pathway continues onto the opposite side and heads south parallel to the creek, pasing John Muir Elementary School and Baxter Park. If you don’t want to ride all the way up to Davis Street, you can cross over Bear Creek at Whistler Way and also a bit further north on Rivermont Drive.

After this little detour the trail maintains an east-west orientation along White Slough. It heads west, crossing Thornton Road, passing Garrigan Park and ducking under I-5/ West Side Freeway. The trail passes one more park, Faklis Park then continues west past the end of the residential neighborhood to its final destination near the Paradise Point Marina.

There are unpaved sections continuing east past Lower Sacramento Road but its not clear how safe or well-maintained those sections are.

Parking and Trail Access

You can find parking at Faklis Park, 5250 Cosumnes Drive in Stockton. You can also find a drinking water. a gazebo and courts for various sports.

Bear Creek Trail (CA) Reviews

I’m making this my favorite local bike path. It’s quiet, clean for the most part, and it’s long enough to get a good ride in.
