Bear Creek Falls appears to be one of those disappointing waterfalls that are virtually impossible to see clearly. I've been here twice and have been unable to find a clear view. I have one more idea that I might try in the future, but otherwise this one might just be too hidden to see. On my second trip, I was able to see the falls well enough to describe them properly, even though the pictures don't show it.

Bear Creek Falls begins with a plunging drop of 80' in height. This is followed immediately by a 90' tall fan-shaped drop. The creek then cascades for another 60' before finally leveling out. This lower section is the only part that I have gotten a clear view of so far. Luckily, Bear Creek has two more waterfalls that are much easier to view, but these are not nearly as impressive.
