    Unremarkable. Very rocky trail.

    Cold morning with temperatures starting at 27 degrees. The east side of the lake is the best side with only dirt and rock trails.

    We hiked this trail on June 25 2019, The trail started on Senators Hwy and as we continued on the trail it went though a recent logged area which opened up the landscape and provided an extended view of the land. Along the hike we saw asclepias (milkweed) and aquilegia (yellow columbine) and many other wildflowers. The trail passes Upper and Lower Goldwater lakes which requires a side trail the hike to. The trail ended at White Spar campground and made for a pleasant hike.

    Great easy hike to a phenomenal end point, the largest natural sandstone arch in Cocinino NF. The trail starts off of Long Canyon Road a little north of the usual starting spot for Devil's Bridge. That little drive provides more abundant parking. The trail is mainly flat, winding through the forest in and out of shade until it reached Vultee Road where the 4wd people can start the hike. After that, be perpared for a lot of company as it winds uphill gently to the base of the arch. There's a 100 yd side trail to the left that leads underneath the arch which is pretty cool in itself. Going back to the junction, there are some medium challenging steps (but steps!) that carry you to the viewing spot for the arch. On the Sunday before Memorial day there were about 30 people waiting in line for the admittedly cool photo opportunity. Wait or not, then retrace your steps back to the 4wd parking and then cross the road and take the marked path back to your car. Easy 4+ mile hike with only 500 feet gain. The only challenge is the steps which are pretty easy, but made harder by the crown ascending/descending.

    Tough but so worth the effort. Wear good gripping hiking shoes. Having a hiking pole is also very helpful. Spectacular views.

    Was okay. Too many people and too many people looking to earn the Darwin award getting as close to the edge of the bridge as possible with a steady 15-30 knot wind with gusts. Hike was easy enough that my 6 year old made it just fine.

    This was our first place to hike in Sedona. The view from here is incredible but unless we missed something, we didn’t find much of a trail here. Great spot to watch the sunset

    Tough but rewarding. Definitely try to summit in the morning before it heats up.

    2019-03-13 Great hike. The views keep getting better the higher you climb. My total travel Tim was about 4 hours, with about 1 hour of rests/photos/food. Left the trailhead at 1pm, back by 6pm. There was light snow at the top, a nice way to cap the trail. The trail is quite a scramble, so if that’s not your thing maybe do a different one. But the effort involved is totally worth it for the views.

    The creek was running high so all the crossings were mid-calf to just below the waist. The trail was washed out in sections, especially st the crossings. Still a great hike, would do it again.

    I hiked Bear Mountain 2011 while vacationing in AZ. It gets a lot of hype for being difficult, but honestly, it didn’t seem that tough even on a hot day in June. Difficult or not, the views from the top of the surrounding red rock country are absolutely stellar!

    I would rate this loop as moderate-high difficulty. Lovely in late January 2019. We hiked counterclockwise (toward Brin's Mesa first), so that the Sinkhole was at the end. Not much wildlife out in the winter, but the scenery is outstanding.

    Take the rock climb up past the "end of maintained trail" sign. Then follow the rim where the rest of the crowds stop and you'll find spectacular views and get some less travelled paths to the end of the canyon.
