Bear Trail in Spring

Scenes of the Bear Trail
in Late Spring

The College of the Siskiyous Bear Trail is located on the C.O.S. campus in Weed, California.  It serves as a 1.7 mile nature trail for various biology courses, and is open to the public.  Its recreational value is great, as many use it for jogging, walking their dogs or just enjoying nature.  This web page is an attempt to illustrate a late May walk on the Bear Trail. Enjoy!!
