Nice hike!

This is a nice scenic hike. The nice part is that there's shade on this hike. The end also has a pretty epic view. Overall I would rate this as an easy and beautiful hike!

Absolutely beautiful hike through this amazing area of Sedona. We hiked it with our 2 kids (11 and 13) and although long, we loved it. With he heat of the summer - best to start as early as possible and take a little picnic!!

This is a great hike for families! Not difficult and there are beautiful views! Lots of time to walk and talk and not huffing and puffing the entire time.

With a guides help we made it to ancient Hopi ruins with a challenging hike. The Enchantment Resort is a bit of a distraction but the scenery is beautiful and the sense of history profound.

The weather was perfect, the views picturesque, the feeling of serenity magical. The vortex energy is felt like seriously if you stop and pay close attention to the vibes running through you. Be open, take it all in and enjoy this natural beauty. Not too difficult of a hike either.....you determine how far you go in and then come back... More

Nice and easy hike! It's doable at any time during the day since a lot of vegetation in a addition to a nice breeze provide good cooling. We did the trail at the end of July at noon when the temperature was hovering around 100° and still felt great. Take lots of water and some Gatorade to replenish lost minerals.

It was nice and easy trail to get to the vista overlooking the valley. We didn't go much further than the vista because we were tired and it was very hot. It was very pretty, tho!

it is a trek from the parking lot to the trail head but well worth, plan to spend at least 3 hours on this beautiful train in the Sedona Red Rocks

Lots of great views. We started a little late around 10:30am, and it ended up being a little too warm for the full round trip. Trail is pretty easy and doesn't go up to much in elevation. We did run into a deer about 1.5hrs in, so it was great to catch a little wildlife in the hot mid-day. Good... More

Pretty easy hike. Gets you to the base of Kachina Woman and Warrior Man. Very serene. Vortex at the base of Kachina Woman. We were lucky enough to hear a Reiki master playing the flute atop Warrior Man. Such an amazing experience.
