Located in the Red Rock-Secret Wilderness, Bear Mountain is quite prominent with a summit of 6,453'.  The Bear Mountain Trail climbs up the south slope of the mountain ascending four plateaus.  It features awesome constantly unfolding views of Doe Mountain, Boynton Canyon,
Red Canyon and, at its summit, the San Francisco Peaks. On the climb up you will pass by red rock pillars, eroding sandstone cliffs, caves and small arches.  Be prepared for a bit of a workout here since there are some steep sections.  A Red Rock pass may be required for parking at the trailhead.  Plan on wearing sturdy shoes and bringing at least three liters of water. This hike, my personal favorite, is listed as one of the top ten hikes in Sedona. 

A stop at a local watering hole after the hike is a distinct probability  - schedule accordingly.

    The hike was well organized and the scenery was awesome! The trail was steep and rugged but worth the effort. I'd hike it again in a heartbeat.
