This is also a must for hikers, the surrounding is magical. There is no better place to hike then in Sedona.

A short but steep hike with glorious views. We hired a private guide to take us to lesser known parts of the hike and lead us in Native American spirituality rituals--a full and rewarding experience.

We've been to Sedona before, but never got around to visiting this spot. Last month we took a trolley tour that brought us here, and OMG!! We were completely engulfed by the beautiful red rocks, and the views were beyond incredible. Andy visitor wishing to get the full Sedona experience must go!

However, This is not a climb for children.The climb is sooo worth it. I did this climb with my daughter to the top. The views are incredible. I liked that there were frequently places to stop and take in the view and rest. the climb down was very easy.

A must see when you are in the Sedona area. We have spent the past 4 days looking at the wonderful rock formations and find each better than the last.

My husband's favorite of all the Sedona hikes we did. This is more of a climb than a hike but the elevation rise is amazing. We didn't go all the way but decided to stop at a really narrow and somewhat loose rock path. I have to admit I had a little anxiety sitting up there and realizing I had... More

The views and scenery are awesome. Plenty of trails to get up close and personal. Or just a different view. We loved visiting here

Came to Sedona for President's Weekend and went on three hikes today (Bell's Rock and Devil's Bridge) but this one is the BEST. Even with it raining! It is a climb to the top and you will sort of crabwalk some parts on the way down, but insanely invigorating. Top to bottom this is a HIKE... not a calm path... More

Loved this walk! Templeton Trail spins off to the left from Cathedral Rock and we liked Templeton Trail the best.
