1st trip
Good hike with Lily and The Eagle. We parked on 95 at the intersection with a road that only exists on the map and as a sign. The signed but non-existent road took us on a bushwack down into Bear Canyon. Bear is probably more scenic, larger, and contains more water than Dane and Barbershop Canyons but is also is little slower to get through. With that said, we only had one major bypass to avoid a swimmer. We took Bear north to where 95 crosses and then over to Pinchot.

Soon after reaching 95, it began to rain. It was no big deal and perfect timing. We were able to take lunch at Pinchot Cabin sheltered under the overhang and wait for the rain to end. The rain ended and we were in and out of blue skies for the rest of the day. We then headed south on Houston Brothers until just before the Barbershop intersection. Here there lies another road that only exists on maps that takes you down to the canyon. We found a good route and bushwacked back down into East Bear Canyon.

We then took the canyon the 2.5 miles north back into Bear Canyon proper and bushwacked back up to my truck. This was a good day and we got to see a lot of Bear Canyon.
