We opted to climb Sulphur mountain in the end. It's about 3.5 miles up the mountain - made harder by the lack of oxygen due to altitude. We managed it in about 2.5 hours up and 2 hours back down (it was raining on the way down). The views from the top were breath taking (not just because of the lack of oxygen). We saw plenty of wildlife from the top too - chipmunks, squirrels and marmots in particular. Still no bears much to Marcelo's disappointment.
