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.

Couple in mid-60's. Fun trail with stunning views and just enough challenge to make memorable. One of the most enjoyable we have done in the Sedona area. Can't recommend it enough.

We traveled a little over a half mile into the trail in order to get some better pictures, plus it was mid-day and we did not have water with us. Fun and rather easy trail for those that are looking for a short trail to complete to get you closer into the red rock sites.

This is a short, but often steep, hike to a "sky island." the trail switchbacks up through desert forest to a wide, flat mesa. The views differ in every direction so going around the edge (about 1 mile) are definitely worth it. Start early (by 8 at least) and you'll be in shade all the way up. Take water!

Great steep climb up to the top of Doe Mesa, where you can walk the whole rim and see the views from every angle.

Relatively short climb (maybe .7 miles) zig-zagging up this mountain to the top of the mesa. Some steep areas, but mostly moderate climb. If you have time once you reach the top, recommend visiting all sides of the mesa to see the different views available. Be sure that you bring plenty of water. Parking lot at the trail head has...

A reasonably short hike up to the Mesa, with stunning views. It is worth walking around the whole Mesa before heading back down, only takes a little longer and well worth the effort.

My seven and eight-year-old did this hike with me on Labor Day weekend. The drive is not too far off the main roads -- maybe ten minutes. I think that has something to do with why it was so uncrowded, in spite of the date. Anyway, it's a nice hike, moderately strenuous, and pretty short (under .7 miles one-way, I'd... More

We hike Sedona a couple of times a year. This is probably my least favorite hiking trail that I have been on there. If you are short on time don't make this one a priority - try Buddha Beach, Devils Bridge, West Fork, Bell Rock, Cathedral trail all before this hike.

The views at the top are breathtaking, The hike is short, but vigorous. The cacti and tree-strewn mesa feels sacred and peaceful.
