Started at the Baldwin Trailhead, walked along the creek, very peaceful, couple nice small "beaches". Then hiked up to Cathedral Rock, great views all around. Could have spent a couple more hours exploring. Will definitely go back!

Cathedral Rock offers stunning views all around. Rich, red rock changes as the light changes throughout the day. Beautiful area!

Tough climb and the end through the switch backs. Some loose rocks so be careful with your footing. Worth the workout for the views.

Well worth the trek up the big "hill" :-) Make time to spend a few quiet moments in the chapel - in addition to the stunning views outside!

This is a fun and at times, steep, hike/scramble. The trail is easy to follow with cairns to guide you. Once you're at the top the view from every direction is breathtaking! Be sure to wear good boots and have plenty of water.

" It looks so irresistable,I want to just eat it",the beautiful girl said resting briefly. That was a good day.Being in love with your surroundings,as much as the company you are lucky enough to experience it with...ALL ELSE PALES. Fortunately for everyone hiking Sedona trails,there's 120 more, all colored by millions of tears of appreciation. Stop by the local favorite... More
