“annoying to pay to see this view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Far to pricey to bother stopping here. Bit touristy of an area, we enjoyed other walks and sites around the area much better. Seems there are quite a few swimming areas you have to pay a steep price to access.

“Great view, short hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Did this hike midday on a 97 degree day and it was warm, still a great hike. First half is easy, maybe moderate however second half is advanced hike. O'k for kids above 10, however would need to take is slow and easy. Total distance is .7 miles, just over a kilometer. Great view from the saddle at the top of the hike, both ways. Hike is well maintained and well marked top to bottom.

Recommended as one of the "been there done that' hikes in Sedona.

“Local Landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Cathedral Rock is one of the most well-known and spectacular rock formations in the Sedona area. It can be see from many different viewpoints - along Hwy 179, from the Baldwin Trail, Red Rock Crossing and others.

DO NOT make the climb up the trail (and down) unless you are an experienced hiker and well-prepared.
