Great hike! Awesome view and the trail overall was pretty cool. Some incline at the beginning but overall not too hard and well worth the hike. WARNING: Make sure to watch out for snakes! We saw a 2 snakes at different points on the trail.

great views of the city, not to hard

Gorgeous trail! Little confusing to find but we figured it out! The Bears Loop was a fun little extra, maybe half mile, after you cross the bridge rather than going back over it. Went around 8:30 in mid July and most of it was still shady and cool!

The hike itself was gorgeous since we went night hiking. however, I followed the directions on the app and it lead me to a church and waaay off from where the actual trailhead started.

This was a nice hike. For me it was a bit confusing to find the trail because I kept looking for "bear canyon trail" signs, which do not exist. So to those that need the help, like I did, here is what you do. Park in the park parking lot next to the LDS church. Take the paved path that heads east and then south. Take the second BST exit which heads south. Stay on the BST for like 1.5 miles. Then you have a choice. You can take the bear canyon loop first, which ends right after the suspension bridge and then come back on the bridge and back up the BST. OR you can stay on the BST past the suspension bridge and head back via the bear canyon loop. Either way it will only be about 3.5 miles total and like 400 ft elevation gain. The hike is very exposed, so go early. Also, the BST is a busy trail, especially for bikers, so stay alert. I wouldn't say this is kid friendly, but maybe teenager friendly. The bear canyon loop gets a bit steep, so little ones may have a harder time. Enjoy! (Oh and please note that there is a section of this trail that is NOT dog friendly. Please watch for the signs and respect the watershed)
