This church has magnificent views when facing the altar and when looking out the door of the church. There is no need for any decoration within the church as the red mountains of Sedona are breath taking. We parked below and walked up to the church. It was quite a hike. There are golf carts available to drive up the... More

Clint and Ed at Sedona Sacred Earth really bring the teachings and the history of this natural sacred site to light. They are able to take you to places to view it that you otherwise would not find if you are not a local. Their ability to intertwine historic teachings with whatever journey you are on personally is superb and... More

Our family of 4 decided to do this hike early in the morning when it was cooler and that is my first suggestion if you are considering this. We got to the parking lot around 8:30 am on a Sunday and there were about 5 parking spots left (the lot isn't huge). This hike is partially CLIMBING rock, so you... More

A few days ago my family and I climbed to the top of Cathedral Rock very early in the morning. At first the trail starts off relatively easy but soon we were really climbing the rocks, pulling ourselves up and looking for handholds and footholds. Also this is not Disney, there are no safety barricades and if you fall off... More

This is not an easy hike, but it is worth it. When you arrive in the parking lot, you can use your National Parks pass to park, and don't have to pay the fee (though they don't say that on the ticket machine). The hike isn't for rookies or people not in reasonably good shape -- there are some challenging... More
