Beautiful trail with a variety of views. Hiked this in early May at 10 am and saw very few people until our last couple miles. Sculptured Beach was a stunning side trip - succulents, flowers, shells and white sand. I’d avoid Bear Valley trail if I did it again - more like an access road as it’s wide, flat and filled with more people.
