Upper Portion of Bear Mountain Trail -- Sedona, AZ    
The end  of Bear Mountain Trail is shown above.  The two asterisks are at trail end (Trail Peak) and on a small rise before the final Trail Peak.  The change in elevation to the small peak is 1400 feet.  Fay Canyon is to the east of the small peak (right).  As the hike continues, the hiker climbs another 600 feet with Fay Canyon to the east (right) (the change in elevation is approximately 2000 feet).  The two yellow arrows designate the two portions of the trail which have the final two stone steps which need to be traversed.
