Mountain Counties tour highlights Bear River Watershed

Bear River is not the longest river, nor is its watershed the largest, but it encapsulates many conditions found throughout the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains. Situated between the Yuba River to the north and the American River to the south, the Bear River is only 65 miles long from its source in Nevada County to where it flows into the Feather River, and on to the Sacramento River and the Delta.
