Trail
“2 miles away. A great little park for the kids. Free parking and Free admission. The following is from Bear Hollow's website; Bear Hollow Zoo is home to a variety of non-releasable wildlife residents. These animals have encountered a challenge that they could not overcome, either physical or behavioral, and have been placed here to live out their lives serving as ambassadors for their species. They are here to educate our visitors about the wonderful wildlife with which we share space.”
