Bear Mountain 7184 by Dan Saxton

Elevation: 7,184 ft

This Clearwater peak is found on page 68. Thanks to Dan Saxton for the following update.


This is a bit of a long, but relatively easy trail hike from the Jerry Johnson Hot Springs area. The lower part of the trail goes through a lush forest but higher up enters a burned area where entire slopes were razed – quite a contrast! The summit has an extremely nice lookout tower and cabin, with stellar views of the Bitterroots, Grave Peak, and the Selway Crags. Very much recommended along with a soak in Jerry Johnson Hot Springs on the way back!
