Bear Mountain Trail is worn trail with shade at the bottom and nice inclines later. Some scrambling and need to watch footing. Our group of four hiked without walking sticks with no problem. Beautiful views at top but did loss the trail briefly going down.

I've hiked this trail 3 times, but I am a local. Bring plenty of water (3 liters/adult) even on cool days. Sedona has low humidity and sweat evaporates off before your clothes get wet. Hydrate before the hike. If you are thirsty you're de-hydrated. Beer and wine de-hydrate you. Take a lunch or even a dinner and enjoy the views.... More

Great hike, but not for the light hearted!! Must be in good shape! Go prepared with plenty of h2o and snacks. Trail marks are hard to see at times. A compass would be smart to take. We got confused which way to go a couple of times. We went when it was 104 degrees. We took plenty of breaks when... More

What a great trail to hike/scramble on. This is not for the faint-hearted if you want to make it all the way to the end. This is a strenuous hiking trail and it does take about 4.5 hrs out and back. There is not much shade so be sure to leave in the mornings and take lots of water and... More

Nice hike, climbing to the top is more difficult so make sure to have some good hiking shoes. The views from the top are nice. Make sure to take some water, you will want it by the time you get to the top. Not for anyone who is afraid of heights.

We decided to hike this trail over some of the more popular ones in the area because we were so sick of dealing with crowds after Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. This was definitely a more off the beaten path trail. We saw very few other hikers while we were out. It was wonderful. Getting to the trail head... More

This was our best hike in Sedona! The hike up took us 2.5 hours and had a lot of just spectacular views on the way up and down. The top is 2000 vertical feet above the parking lot, so this is not a hike for someone who is not in reasonable shape, but if you want to take your time... More

My husband and I did this hike and numerous other Sedona hikes over the last week. This one was probably the most physically demanding due to the elevation change and the sometimes challenging nature of the trail. Getting to the "End of Trail" sign at the top reminded me of finishing a half marathon. I was grateful to see the... More

This is a great hike if you're up for a little challenge. Very rugged trail which we loved. When you think you're almost to the top, you're actually less than half way, but it's worth it.
