Going up Little Bear is quite easy; the climb is gradual and the steeper sections are short. I would not recommend weekends, though, because the trail is very narrow in places, and I met over a dozen mountain bikers on Sunday (zero on Monday).

The Little Bear descent is great. It's a good scenic hike as you wrap back and forth across the mountain. Lots of exposure due to fire damage. It's a very gradual descent and wouldn't be bad going up. With only 3 or 4 turns over the 3.5 mile descent, it's pretty easy to gauge where you are. Loved it.
