Bear Canyon Trail Fs #29 Professional Reviews and Guides
"A day hike along Bear Canyon. Sloping walls covered in saguaro rise above a canyon floor choked with deep-rooted shrubs. There are several streamcourse crossings as the trail proceeds up the canyon; stepping stones provide dry passage when water levels are high. As the canyon penetrates the outer cordillera of the Santa Catalinas, soaring walls of gneiss rise high above the stream. This metamorphic rock is banded into distinctive black and white stripes. The cliffs reach a dramatic climax at Seven Falls. This fantastic cataract tumbles across stair-stepped drop-offs, and magnificent saguaros rise on all sides. A spur trail drops to the edge of the lowermost plunge pool."
--Erik Molvar, Hiking Arizona's Cactus Country (Falcon Guides).
"A walk to famous Seven Falls, a series of seasonal cascades in Bear Canyon. Special Considerations: During the hot summer months, plan your hike for early in the morning and carry plenty of water."
--Bruce Grubbs, A FalconGuide to Saguaro National Park & the Santa Catalina Mountains (Falcon Guides).
