Bear Willow, FR 84, runs south to north from Rim Road to Hart Canyon. Initially, the trail is on a high ridge east of Bear Canyon Lake. Numerous shady campsites are along this section of trail, but you can’t see the lake down in its deep canyon.

In the north, the trail switchbacks on narrow shelf roads steeply down to cross Willow Creek at Pauls Crossing. The trail is mostly packed dirt with a few loose rocks up to fist-sized. The southern portion of the trail is easier than the northern half, but it is still suitable for 2WD vehicles with good tires.
