Challis National Forest.
This Bear Canyon trail can be found in sawmill canyon. To find Sawmill Canyon you go through Howe Idaho. And head straight up the Pahsimeroi valley. ( NORTH ) Approximately 30 miles out of Howe until you see the forest service sign. That says Sawmill Canyon then just follow the signs and camp. The trail map for this area is the Challis National Forest trail map. The trail number is 080 on this map.
The Bear Canyon trail this year was great. We all i had a great ride. I can't say enough about the view from the top of the trail. The trail does not summit any mountains but. Summits between two mountains in the saddle. Then drops down either into Sawmill Canyon or the Pahsimeroi Valley. I would not recommend this trail for beginners.
Sawmill Canyon is a HUGE!!! place to go ride. This is just one motorcycle trail out of a bunch of four wheeler and motorcycle trails. We make it a point to camp for a few nights every year up here. The mountains surround you on all sides. With trails, ghost towns, streams, lakes, and an abundance of riding.
