  • The Bear Mountain Trail has been on our radar so we decided to hike it this time we were in Sedona. We got to the trailhead at 10am on a beautiful clear January day. The hike is basically a stair-step...  more »
  • Loved this trail. The views are worth the climb! The trail sign had us a little scared. It said that the trail was unmarked. It may have been marked later as there were white arrows that were easy to ...  more »
  • I’m not a strong hiker, but my husband is. We found out about Bear Mountain through meeting another couple at dinner. They told us that is was a difficult, but a fun hike so we decided to check it out...  more »

  • Loved this hike! Took me about 3 hours to finish, but I tend to walk faster than most people. Definitely steeper and more strenuous than other popular trails around the area. There were white arrows painted on rocks to indicate the official trail. If you think you are lost, look for them.
  • This was a great hike in December and we didn't have any snow! We still used up every bit of our water so make sure to bring some with you along with snacks. If you do this in the summer (or any time really) bring exposure protection because there isn't a ton of shade for the whole trail. This hike offers great views of the surrounding areas like us down in the other uploaded pictures.
  • Good hike made on New Year's day 2016. Great view of Humphreys peak from the top.
  • Challenging but rewarding trail. Beautiful views of Sedona and surrounding scape from the first rim and from the end of the trail. The white rock towards the end of the trail has embedded marine fossils (seashells).
  • Great hike with amazing views. Really steep and Rocky so don't underestimate the difficulty just based on distance.
