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!

We spent the day hiking in Sedona and wanted to do one last short hike to cap our day. We were near Doe Mountain and decided to climb to the top of the mesa and, boy, are we glad we did! It took us about 30-35 minutes to ascend, and as other reviews have said the view from the top... More

Short trail with a vertical of several hundred feet. I am 64, reasonably fit and I had no problem with this trail. Fantastic views from the mesa that include Chimney Rock, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte. Do not miss this trail.

Gorgeous moderate hike up a mountain. Ascent complete with panoramic views. Top a wide plateau with a view of Sedona and the valley below. A must!

Gets you out of town, away from tourists and gives an excellent view of the surrounding environs. Make sure to lock your car. I guess there have been some break ins lately.This would require an early ascent in the summer months due to the heat. We came upon a spiritual awakening as a shaman and her followers were drumming and... More

The wife did her first hike here. She can have difficulty with heights, but managed to get to the top. The view from up here has to be among the best in all of Sedona.

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
