This trail has some challenging switchbacks and narrow areas. Otherwise I thought the trail is a moderate hike. The tops is flat mesa with plenty of room to walk around and see 360 degrees of beautiful Red Rock views.

This hike departs from a trailhead off of Boynton Pass Road, which can be reached from Dry Creek Road, which connects to Highway 89A. The trail is very short, but quite steep for a novice hiker, or an old hiker now out of shape, like me. However, as long as you are physically able, the climb is well worth the... More

This is one of our favorites since you have several options as you travel around the base of the mountain or you can go up on top for phenomenal views!

Very little people here. Trail was fairly easy you are going up a small mountain. The ice made it a tad more challenging where the trail was climbing over rocks. View from the top was incredible. This was our favorite hike of our trip.

This was a very enjoyable hike, though it was a steep climb. You have to be in fairly decent shape. The views and formations are awesome!

Research tells you this is the place for sunset. I would disagree. Locals warned us to be off the mountain trail before the sun sets and I am glad we listened. It is a steep trail going up. The trail is mostly rock and some places are a little scary so I am thankful we were not walking down in... More

A short 30 minute hike to the top and them get off the trail and walk along the rim to get 360 degree views of the area. We went late in the afternoon and had to park on the road as the lot is very small. But it wasn't very crowded up on top. It can be steep in places... More

For me, this is a moderate skill hiking trail. There are many switchbacks on the way to the top. These make it easier for average hikers to arrive at the top. There is a large mesa at the top which allows you to have panoramic views of the Red Rock formations around Sedona.

This hike provides outstanding 360 degree views after a short (25 min) uphill hike to the top of the mesa, not to be missed.

It is a steep hike but once at the top you get great views. Wouldn't be suitable for people with mobility concerns.
