There are three important highpoints when considering Bear Canyon on Mt Graham's east side. One the footpath is smooth terrain,virtually no rocky paths, top to bottom.(2) There is a trail.(3)the R/T Will not take you 14 hours!! I started late, walked out in dark, don't do that.
There is a safe pull off for your vehicle right off 266. There was a full mile of meandering juniper flatland, which I like in a hike. Then baboom you are swallowed up in the cut peak filled canyon all around you. Views to East of the little known range. The Bear C hike,this area, is not forgiving of bush wacking.. So, take the time, nail down the trail. You will be shined on by the radiant Eastern Sun all the way to 7500 but kind of on your back . So soon, this climb will not be advisable (this is May 1.)
This hike is a very doable day hike for serious hikers, but start early of course. The creme de la creme is the last 1000 feet. All smooth footed full shaded pine forest, and not steep. Bear sign is for sure.We need more foot traffic here, so consider invitation sent.
