1st trip
On an eight day Monsoon August'21 Vehicle Camping Trip, this was my second planned "off-trail" dayhike within the Cabin Loop Area of our Mogollon Rim. This day I had plans to reach a very special, scenic section of Bear Canyon Main [ photo ] located between the intersections of Bear Cyn Main at Lwr East Bear Cyn and Bear Cyn Main at Lwr West Bear Canyon.

In previous years I had plotted on HAZ- Route Editor (using the Satellite View and the HAZ Topo View), two different Gps Routes into and back out of this area. Both of which have be less than ideal due to the required bushwhacking, some loose, rocky, steep exposure sections, and just too many down trees requiring difficult navigation out and back. For this August'21 attempt, I again viewed our HAZ- Route Editor Map/Satellite options and came up with a new third Gps planning route out and back. This third route would head in from an easy to access Park/TH Start only a short drive down FR139A (see posted Gps Route) and enter Bear Canyon Main only a short distance from the intersection of Bear Canyon Main at Lower East Bear Canyon.

Well, this third route out and back had a nice, shaded Park/TH Start location :) but my planned "off-trail" Gps Route in was a real mess with the bushwhacking and exposure being even worse than my previous two routes :( Being alone on this hike with concerns of safely exiting back UP, I decided to only hike to the lower start of the section I had planned to visit up from Bear Canyon Main at Lower East Bear Canyon X.

So, not recommended!

My posted photoset with captions tells the story best. Hopefully, a fourth off-trail route plan attempt to next time hike in from a Park/TH Start off of FR95, will hopefully be the best solution. Still TBD..
