  • 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 »

  • Made it to the Bear Mountain, Sedona early spring - a 5 mile round trip. The hike was organized to bid farewell to one of our friend & a experienced hiking club member who is headed to India. The mountain is steep enough and 5 miles apparently feels 12 or a 13 mile hike, henceforth. It comprises of two plateau's after steep climbs and offers a great deal of views worth a preserve. The red-rock canyons are incredibly beautiful when seen from the elevation these plateau's offer. On reaching the summit, the immediate thing I saw was the "end of the trail" sign board. However, what's interesting is that, the next immediate thing that I observed was the snow-capped Humphreys summit, maybe I love these that much that they reflect everywhere I go these days. Hopefully I'm not hallucinating. I know, the only remedy for this is to make it to the 12 dot some grand elevation and cherish the views!
  • Wear an ankle brace and bring your first aid kit. Very beautiful once you reach the top! Scenic viewing plus Selfie once you are at the top of the halfway point!!
  • 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.
  • Love hiking here, my dog loves walking here also... some of the best views in the Redrock Secret Mountain Wilderness
  • Very strenuous trail with a amazing views
