From the parking lot we will walk to nearby Little Bear Creek, which we will ford and then follow a trail to Bear Creek. We will cross Bear Creek over an old dam. At the bottom of the dam and further downstream, there are some deep pools carved by the water into the rock. We will stop here for a swim and then follow the creek downstream to a dirt road. After crossing the stream over a bridge, we will walk back to our starting point.
