This kind of a unique short hike. A few easy switchbacks get you to the top of a small mesa, covered with Pinyon and Juniper, with a 360 degree of the Red Rock country.

Our second Sedona hike was recommended by a hiker we met on our first hike of the day. She was right, it was a tricky hike up a number of switch-backs (a few times on hands and feet) with sheer drops off the trail. Once at the top the vistas in 360 degrees were amazing. A couple of interesting points... More

Was a good place to watch the sunrise, complete with silhouettes of three hot air balloons. No one there when I went, but got progressively busier as the day progressed. The top is a large flat mesa that offers easy access to the edge to view the surrounding area from above. Listed by most sites as a moderate hike, probably... More

This is a short 30 minute hike to the top of a mesa. The hike up is mostly shaded. The top is pretty much open so bring a hat, and your binoculars! Great 360 degree view of Sedona and all which surrounds it. You can walk all around the top, which is much larger than you think from the ground.

Trail is moderately hard - uneven, rocky, sharp drop offs, steep in places. I didn't have any trouble, but my wife is short and had a hard time with some of the large steps. Took about 40 minutes to ascend, but it was beautiful on top. Excellent views over the Sedona area. If you're afraid of heights, don't do this... More

It's not that long, (est 3/4 mile) but it's all uphill until you reach the plateau. Once at the top, walk to the other side to treat yourself to why you did this. There are some INCREDIBLE views from the top.

A short if steep in places climb up a well defined trail with stone markers. We climbed up in 20 minutes but less active should allow another 10 minutes. The top is flat and has great views from all sides. The car park like most around the trails of Sedona are $5 fee, or free with an Annual National Parks... More

This is one of the better hikes in the Sedona area. Switchback trail to the top of the mesa is relatively easy and incredibly rewarding in terms of views. Pack a lunch, sit on the rocks and enjoy the scenery!

Well worth the effort! Start early in the shade and then walk the mesa top to see the views...... A bit of scary footing for the less experienced - but doable, especially with a walking stick. The mid portion gave our newbies some heart pounding moments but they even admitted it was worth it. Bring water and your camera!
