A short drive west from Morrison, CO along Hwy 74 will take you to Lair O the Bear Park, a Jefferson County Park that connects to a number of other parks south of 74 by the main trail through the area: the Bear Creek Trail. While there are limited trails through the Lair O the Bear Park, the system connects to Corwina Park, O'Fallon Park and Pence Park nearby for a much larger combined trail system. With plenty of picnic spots and easy access to Bear Creek for fishing, this is a popular spot for families looking for an easy, relaxing day out.
