Believe the description of this hike! It is a scramble and climb across the rocks at the top of the mountain. Not for the faint at heart. Go with a friend, in case you get stuck.

Although this hike is only about a mile and a half, it's a nice little challenge The gorgeous view from the summit is a worthy pay-off. I am a regular hiker and the rock scramble was not particularly difficult for me. My 9-year-old fearless nephew was on his first hike and had a blast!

This hike is challenging for the very cool rock scramble at the top. You look up and say "Is that a trail blaze on that rock?" and yes, it is! Lots of fun, but not for those who aren't agile or are afraid of heights. Our 9 & 10 year old boys loved it.

This is a challenging hike - but very much doable and absolutely worth the trouble. I am a 57 yr old woman in moderately good physical condition and completed this hike with little difficulty - there is a rock scramble that can be challenging, but worth the view, which is spectacular - I would not recommend this hike in wet weather as the rocks could be slippery and definitely wear good foot gear! Enjoy the View!

I'm 62 yrs old and in good shape ( I guess). This was an easy hike, but my first ever rock scrabble, and unsure what that was. I you also don't know, you will be climbing large boulders. It's not bad, but I did have to put my camera into my backpack so it wouldn't smash into the rocks. The 360* view from the top of Bearfence was worth every step. Not good hike for little kids.
