Little Bear Canyon

Little Bear Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"This is the fastest and most direct route to a remote scenic stretch of
the Middle Fork Gila River. Little Bear Canyon is bounded by narrows,
steep walls, alcoves, and gigantic volcanic formations, making it one
of the most dramatic chasms in the Gila Wilderness."
