1st trip
I wanted to hike around Bear Canyon Lake from below the rim today so I started from a very busy See Canyon TH, took Highline towards Drew and then Drew up the rim. Walked FR9350 until it ends and Aspen Trail #411 begins. Took Aspen Trail to Carr Lake Trail #412 (not listed on HAZ?) briefly until weaving along Gen Crook to FR208 and down to Bear Canyon Lake via the Two-O-Eight TH. Walked along Shoreline Trail to the dam where I enjoyed a nutrition break. The lake was quiet today. Only a few fishermen and a bald eagle soaring around. Took the old jeep road on the east side of the lake to get back to Rim Rd, where I crossed and jumped back onto Gen Crook. After a short hike on Gen Crook I was at See Canyon Trail and on my way back down to the TH. Temps remained nice and cool, most campers I passed were bundled up and sitting by a fire. I was fine in shorts and a t-shirt as long as I was moving. The flat stuff on top of the rim was enjoyable today. Perfect weather, a pine - scented breeze and patches of fall foliage mixed with total solitude made it very pleasant. Almost all of the aspens have lost their leaves and the fall colors in the canyons are still about a week away from prime. Only encountered a couple of hikers on Highline and a couple more on my way down See Canyon. I was greeted by a few deer at the See Spring junction. Ended at a suddenly quiet See Canyon TH. Great hike on a perfect fall day in Rim country.
