very enjoyable, but challenging for casual hikers. The hike to the top of the Cathedral rock was very challenging. , but worth the effort. Several spots required use of hands and arms to traverse steep sections. It was 98 degrees when we finished the 4 hour hike. Start early if it is going to be hot.

The overall trail is consistent with the dry and rocky riding in Sedona with cliffs on one side and cacti on the other. The climb is reasonable but sporty with ledges and technical jaunts and corners. If you're riding the whole loop including the decent/downhill be mindful of your exposure, the remoteness and the ability of who you are riding with. Most of the decent is on this super fun singletrack to slick rock overlook. The views are awesome and there's different lines and variations to explore. But then you get to a super beat up chute type section where the line choices and consequences aren't super clear. I consider myself an above average rider comfortable with every discipline but I walked this section. As a tourist on a rental bike without knowledge of the area or emergency response, it just wasn't worth it.This section does not flow with the rest of the trail type and in talking with other riders it caught many people off guard. That being said, the second time is a charm once you know what to expect and where to point your tire. Just be cautious and don't let adrenaline get the best of your decision making and risk assessment. Anything can happen at the best of times in this sport.

My wife and I are only slightly above average shape - for 60 year olds! This trail was moderately difficult and really worth it. Gorgeous views. We started from Yavapai and climbed the mod we are grade for about 1 1\2 hours, about 2 1\2 miles. One hour back down to parking lot from where we stopped. Sounds like the full loop can be more difficult.

Although not marked as such on the western end, Hiline should be considered directional, as the drop into Baldwin is dh only for MTB. The majority of the trail is maybe single black due more to exposure than technicality, until near the end. There, successive downhill chutes are rideable for some but definitely sketchy and could be consequential when crashing. Views are great, and initial descent from the viewpoint is one of the best around.

I have done most of the hikes around Sedona but this one i overlooked for some reason. It turned out to be an incredible hike. Huge Views!! Did the loop but the HiLine trail was the HiLight! 7.5 miles round trip from Yavapi Vista trailhead. I went clockwise and would do so again next time as well. Highly suggest this hike.
