    Apache - Sitgreaves FS Reports If you're looking for a day hike into the rich streamside habitat and tall forests of the Bear Wallow Wilderness, you may be interested in a couple of loop hikes that begin with this trail. You could start out on the Reno Trail, and return to Forest Road 25 by way of the more moderate gradient of the Bear Wallow trail. That means you'll be taking the easiest route up and you won't have to climb back up the steep switchbacks of the Reno Trail as it descends into the Bear Wallow drainage. Or, if you arrange a shuttle in advance, you could hike out of the canyon via the Schell Trail and take advantage of some of the great views that trail offers from atop the Mogollon Rim.

    The loop around Reno and Bear Wallow is of moderate length (7 miles including a 2.5 mile hike or shuttle between trailheads). The Schell Canyon loop is a bit longer (8.3 miles). If you start early, you'll have time to enjoy the rich plant and animal communities that make a home in the habitat nourished by this secluded wilderness brook. If you like to fish, you may be interested in continuing down Bear Wallow Creek to try your luck at catching some of the native trout that make a home there. The Reno Trail is also a well used primary access route in the Bear Wallow Wilderness. Some forest visitors choose it because it provides the shortest route to the creek and therefore might be the quickest route as well.

    Mixed conifers and aspens border the trail along its upper reaches. As the trail drops into the side canyon it will follow to Bear Wallow Creek, clumps of Gambel oak appear more frequently. Tall ponderosa pines and spruces, canyon hardwoods, and associated riparian species mark the junction with the Bear Wallow Trail in North Fork Canyon.

    Notes:
    No motorized or mechanized vehicles (including mountain bikes) are permitted in Wilderness The trail drops 1,120 feet from the trailhead to the junction with Bear Wallow Trail


    Trail Log:
    0.0 Reno Trailhead on Forest Road 25 across from Reno Lookout road. Take the footpath trail, not the old logging road, to the south
    1.9 Junction with Bear Wallow Trail #63 on the canyon floor. The Schell Canyon Trail #316 is 1.1 miles downstream
