Gathered a small group and went on a new canyon adventure! I plotted a route to take us through a section of west clear creek to explore more around bear canyon starting off at point trail and heading downstream. We met at 8:30am to quickly set up camp then a few of us went to drop off a shuttle vehicle at the Calloway trailhead, which was our exit point. This was where our first hiccup came in, as the directions I had pinned from google maps were completely off. We were in a maze of awful roads for a while before finally reaching the correct location and returning to the rest of the group. They had waited about 2 hours for us to get the shuttle situated, so we were starting the canyon way later than intended. It was a mob scene at point trail and even in the bottom going both directions, but after about 1.5 miles they disappeared. :y: The canyon was beautiful, but it was a mixture of extremely slippery creek walking, or thorny bushwhacking on the sides. We each fell countless times, and were bleeding as well. There were a few swimmers along the way that would have been difficult to bypass, but we didn’t need to inflate floaties. It was slow moving down the canyon and the bushes just got thicker as we continued on. :sweat: We finally made it to our exit point at Calloway which was super steep switchbacks, but a defined path at least. This was pretty brutal for a day hike given how slow moving it was, but it was definitely a beautiful one! Definitely make sure to have a lot of fuel for this one since it’s so grueling. Glad to have friends up for any adventure! Camped near point TH and celebrated @john9l’s birthday! Woke up nice and chilly which was awesome :D
