Trailhead at Cowles or Holy Ghost (N. from Pecos, NM) in Pecos Wilderness. This is a major hike... get a good map, and provisions for a full day on the trail.
From the bridge below the spillway of Stewart Lake, go 130 paces on the trail toward Spirit Lake (you'll be at a low, turn in the trail)... Look toward Sprit and you'll see a sharp tree trunk silhouetted in the distance. Twelve paces down-hill from this trunk, hanging from a tree, you'll find the bear claw.
