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.

we had a wonderful time hiking to the top of Doe Mountain. it was an easy hike and worth every second. we were treated to the approach of a thunderstorm so we did not stay atop the mountain for very long, but the views were terrific. the trail was not crowded at all. only ran into 2-3 other small groups....

This is a great hike, and while it requires a good deal of climbing, we had no problems and we are 68 and 75. It is a thrill to get to the top! But stop repeatedly on the way up to look across the valley at the way the sunlight hits the rock formations, it is different every time you... More

Fairly steep uphill, but otherwise not difficult. At the top you can wander a little to check out different sides of the mountaintop. But please remember to use existing trails or follow water runoff flows to avoid damaging the fragile desert crust (don't bust the crust!).

A challenging climb, wear solid shoes, a wide-brimmed hat and bring water, a hiking stick and your camera.
