Bear Creek (Satellite Images, Coleman Ranch to Molalla STP)

The headwaters of Bear Creek start at Coleman Ranch, near Adams Cemetery Road. The creek  then flows west crossing Mathias Road, Molalla Avenue, Highway 211 (at Ona Way), and Highway 213 (just north of Safeway). Bear Creek passes just north of the Molalla Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), which used Bear Creek to discharge wastewater as late as 2007.
