Part of the Boggy Draw Trail System.

Bean Canyon Trail is a popular loop in the Boggy Draw/McPhee Reservoir trail system. Bean Canyon is a 13.5-mile trail and gains 1,200 feet point to point. This trail can be accessed from an intersection with Mavericks Loop and heads northwest towards McPhee.

Much of this trail system was built by linking together cow paths created by the cattle that graze here every summer. Eventually, the Mavericks Loop trail was added along with the Bean Canyon Loop and Italian Canyon Loop.
