This easy, 1.5-mile loop within Devils Fork State Park gets its name from a rare wild flower that has gorgeous white blooms. The endangered Oconee bell wildflower may also be seen along the Bear Cove Trail. Starting from the rear of the park office, this plainly marked and well-maintained trail winds through a predominantly hardwood forest and follows a creek that provides surreal sounds that add to its charm. Throughout the trail you will find benches that provide a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the lively forest. The trail is also endowed with a small pond that is a great place to view pond life. The Oconee Bells Nature Trail is a wonderful addition to the many activities presented in Devils Fork State Park.
