Facility:Bear River State Park and Visitor Center, and BEAR Project
Description:The Bear River State Park and BEAR Project have an unbelievable beauty and amount of things to do. Just the state park is over 300 acres. Trails lace all throughout, with about 3 miles of paved trails suitable for walking, running, bikes, skateboards, ripsticks, strollers, remote control cars, etc., and 1.7 miles of packed gravel suitable for hiking or mountain biking. Everywhere is suitable for cross country skiing and snowshoeing in winter! There are small reservoirs, the magical Bear River, a huge walking bridge, a fishing pier, a playground, group and single picnic areas, and so much more! There are bison and elk herds, an amazing tourist info center with helpful staff and many films you can choose to watch, a trailer sanitary station, viewing overlooks, and a volksmarch trail. You may see moose, great blue herons, marmots, deer, and countless other birds, lizards, snakes, insects and fish. There is an amazing variety of plant life too. After the rush of swollen snow-melt water, the river calms down into a lovely swimming/rafting/tubing place.
