Finished in 3 hours 37 minutes. Perfect weather, mid-70’s with a breeze. Very narrow and moderate trail with varying uneven, rocky, and flat surfaces throughout. Bear Ridge is fairly overgrown in several sections but Bear Canyon trail is much more accessible and open. The last .9 to the peak is where the fun begins! Didn’t use trekking poles to summit but they would’ve been helpful for the first section down as it is steeper and more uneven than any other parts of the trail. Not many views until you reach the top but perfect weather and no congestion made for a great day hike!
