The Bear Creek trail is located in Telluride, Colorado. The trail begins in the Bear Creek Preserve where after a short distance it enters the Uncompahgre National Forest. From there the trail continues up Bear Creek following an old road to around the 2 mile point where it is met by the Wasatch trail which branches off on the right. The Bear Creek trail continues for another 2 tenths of a mile or so to the base of a scenic waterfall.
