Bear Creek Amphitheatre

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Alt Names Bear Creek Resort Ranch KOA, Bear Run, Bear Creek
Last Known Status Open

Located about one mile east past the Bear Creek Resort Ranch KOA, this area offers about 26 miles of marked woods trails, a motocross track, several creek crossings and a 250 foot hillclimb. The trails are open year-round during weekends from 8am to dusk and during weekdays for three or more riders (reservations required).

Riding fees run about $20/rider and kids 8-10 years old are $15/rider. There is a pay station at the Bear Creek Amphitheatre but if paying by credit card this can be done at the KOA Campground.

There is no direct access from the campground to the trails so machines must be trailered in and out. For more information or to make reservations call (330) 484-3901.
