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.

We made it up in 2 hours and 20 minutes. Every time we went over a mountain there was a nother one to climb over. It was a good time and the view was worth the hike.

My wife and I made it to the top of Bear Mountain for the second time. It says 2.5 miles, but it is a long 2.5 mile hike....up nearly 2000 ft. But it is worth it. We left early, on a cool day, and took our time enjoying the beautiful flowers and all the different kinds of rock formations and... More

Hands down the best trail to hike in Sedona. I enjoyed it more than the Grand Canyon. Difficult going up, but the view you get is well worth it

Love this Hike. Warning, it is too technical for many people and easy for them to lose the path and under-estimate the time it takes to get off the trail before dark. I love how peaceful it is.

I have never been so happy to see an "End of Trail" sign in my life! The last .8 miles is very vertical and was challenging. I am so glad we did it, but be ready for a challenge!

We preferred this hike to Bell Rock 110%. Very challenging hike but totally doable and you can get all the way to the top. Strenuous but not scary. So happy that a local told us about this hike.

Wow! There are several "false summits" with spectacular scenery, but the view from the top is awe inspiring!

It's one of those tough hikes where the summit seems to keep eluding you, but when you do make it, every step is worth it. Fantastic views, just fantastic.
