After years of staring at it on the map, I finally got off my butt and hiked this loop. The morning started off cool and super humid. Weather just got nicer and nicer. The upper stretches of Bear Canyon are just fantastic, especially the rolling grassy hills high up in the canyon. The stretch just above the falls is cool too. Many little pools and waterfalls. Great trees and huge boulders all over the place, including one huge square monster that appears perched on it's point. The trees along the creek are turning, making for great ambiance.

The stretch along the East Fork just rocks, as always.

Coming back on Sabino #23, I had forgot how sweet this trail was. It has been years since I was actually on this trail, but the views came back in a hurry. Hiked the Phoneline back, then the connector down to Sabino Creek trail and Dam trails to make an overall 18.5 mile loop of perfection.
