The vibe at Bear Canyon Trail Camp
Drop some Bear Canyon Trail Camp knowledge on us.
Around a 3.5 mile backpack from Switzer Picnic area. Great spot. Fire pits, picnic tables and although there is no potable water, there is a stream nearby to filter water from. About a mile upstream, there are a series of 10-foot waterfalls that you can slide down. Campsite is shaded under a canopy of trees. In my opinion, the ideal location.
Camped here last Saturday and had the entire site to myself. The trail past the Switzer fork is a not well maintained. A couple downed trees you have to climb over, not a problem. The trail also has a lot of little fresh water pools along the way and several water crossings. Didn't really experience any curious animals during the night. Great site, no one there this time of year. I will come back again soon.
