Best forum for Utah beta is Utah Rivers

Not familiar with "Bear Canyon". Below Deer Creek to Vivian park is a popular class I-II beginner/tuber run good for learning or for working on basic skills like catching eddies or rolling in moving water. I wouldn't say there's whitewater besides a few little waves, a tricky bridge trestle to avoid, and a few rocks and avoidable underwater logs placed for trout habitat. Runs almost all summer.
Gauge: CUWCD

Below that is Bridal Veil section. Fun, class III-IV-, with potential for cold long swims if you're not up to it. Only runs for a few weeks each year (a month on a good year), late May & June. Follow the utrivers forum and you'll know if its running.

If you're asking about the upper Provo Falls/Slate Gorge class V section, I don't have any beta for you.

Thanks for the info!!! Bear canyon is were the take out is before the railroad bridge. It is private property on river left. You can take out on the right and short uphill walk to a small parking lot.
