Nice short hike. Took us about 25 minutes up and decent pace. Quick elevation changes with constant switchbacks. Went up to watch a sunset. Highly recomended

I have wanted to climb a mountain as a life goal. Doe Mesa just my level: I'm 65, with knees that tend to ache. I 'trained' here in flat Ohio, hoping I could do it. Doe climbs 10000ft on a switch back trail, so the climb up is gradual. More importantly, the hike down isn't a killer for achy knees!... More

THis is a moderate trail, views are great, especially once at the top. After you roam around at the top, it can be difficult to find the trail back down. Easy to get turned around after exploring the views. Otherwise, it's definitely worth going to if you enjoy moderate hikes. I believe it took us 5 hours but we spent... More

Easy to find your way up, of course trail had it's challenging spots. Trail at top marked poorly as well as the spot where to get down. It surely would be a good idea to mark it better!

This hike is relatively short to get to the top of the mesa but it is rather steep. Once at the top of the mesa take a mental note of where the trail crested the top of the hill as we had to search for a while on the way back to find the beginning of trail back down the... More

Hiking to the top of the mesa is not too difficult, and the pay-off is amazing! You can see down into the valleys and over to many of the red rock formations. Really special! We packed a lunch and enjoyed eating with a priceless view.

This is the second time for us to hike Doe Mountain. We did this over 15 years ago and it was a must see for this trip. There are two trailheads and it would be best to park at the closest one. The trail is well marked and near the end a bit steep. Once on top, make sure you... More

One of the best hikes of the week. Took about 70 mins up and down total. Go before 9:30 if want to climb in shade. Moderate climb on switchback all the way up to the top. Great views from on top - Sedona one way and other red rocks in all other views.

We did this hike on a day trip to Sedona, it was awesome great views, great trail and what we really liked was there weren't the people like the Grand Canyon crowds. It was easy hiking or more advanced hiking, your choice, loved it. Finished it off with a packed picnic lunch at the end.

It's fun to walk up this zig zag trail. Once on top allow for an extra 1-1/2 hours to walk around the rim & take photos and enjoy the 360° view. It's an exhilarating feeling. An easy to moderate hike worth taking.
