Lower Bear Canyon Trail
This easy trail leaves a neighborhood and parallels a shrub-filled drainage up into the ponderosa pines. Look for Bushtit, Spotted Towhee, and both Blue and Steller’s Jay. It is good place to see migrant birds in late spring, and Virginia’s and MacGillivray’s Warbler in summer.
