Bear Mountain Trail

Bear Mountain Trail

Hike Description:

We will meet at the Parking lot. Look for your guide wearing a backpack with yoga mats attached and holding an ASU umbrella. The guide will have your cell number to call you if you are having any challenges finding the trail.

A very challenging hike, its like hiking Camelback and Piestewa in Phoenix at the same time. The good news is we don’t go all the way to the top, unless you really want too. The reason is ¾ of away up is one of the most beautiful scenes in Arizona. When you reach the top, you recognize this fact. Also as we practice Yoga and Chi Gong... the view will take your breath away with all its beauty. You will want a bunch of photos. Depending on your pace, it will take about 75 minutes to 100 to reach our destination.

In the summer it’s an early morning hike. In the spring and fall more middle of the day. So total time could be 4 to 5 hours or more depending on your endurance level. You should bring a pack with ½ gallon to 1 gallon of water, power bars, a shirt to change if you sweat too much. Round trip to the top is 5 miles. As always if you decide the hike seems too challenging or for what ever reason your not feeling you need to reach ¾ of the way. We can find another spots not as far to practice the Yoga and Chi Gong.

As usual your guide will meet you at the trail head wearing a backpack with yoga mats attached and holding an ASU Umbrella.
