A somewhat challenging climb for 2 60-year-olds, but so rewarding once we arrived at the top! The views from the top are spectacular! Make sure to allow time to walk the perimeter of Doe Mtn Mesa at the top. It's about 1 mile around and the scenic panoramas cannot be beat!

This is a short hike (.6 miles), but it is almost all uphill. Please do not let that deter you! There are plenty of great spots to rest if you need to, and you can forge right ahead if you are in okay shape. But do take moments to see how the view changes as you go up. The trail... More

My wife and I ran around the entire Doe Mesa (or Mountain). Parts of the trail run right on top of the rock and you can climb up to the top (a 3/4 mile steep hike) for beautiful views of Sedona and surrounding country. You can park for free at Aerie trailhead instead of the more popular Doe Mountain trail... More

We hiked this on our first trip to Sedona. Nice gradual hike back and forth up the mountain. Took a while to get there, but you can hike around quite a bit on top to the other side for another great view. Saw wild life signs with paw prints, etc. Great time!

Through a series of graceful switchbacks, the hike leads up to the top of the mesa. Once there, you can explore 360 degrees of views from the table top. The day I was there (mid-June), I saw one other group the entire time. A great choice to escape the crowds and still experience a stunning view.

My husband and I were in Sedona for a weekend visit. We arrived in the afternoon and were looking for a short trail. This trail was awesome! It's easy to follow, about 2 miles round trip. We were expecting to come out on the top facing the same gorgeous view we had on the way up, but actually it takes... More

Doe Mountain trail is approximately 0.9 miles one way, and you come down the same way you enter. You can found this going down 89A and turning right onto Dry Creek Road. You'll follow the road until you hit a stop sign and go left to Boynton Pass and hit another stop sign and go left again .. also at... More

I LOVE hiking Doe Mountain, also called Doe Mesa by some. It's not very long but it is a good UP hike. Views along the way and at the top are spectacular. If you go very early, you often can watch the hot air balloons floating nearby with people watching you watching them wath you. (You get it.) Also, you... More

Path was well marked - took us 25 minutes to reach the top (without stopping). Lots of switch back trails with a gradual rise. Spent about 20 minutes resting at the top with a great view over Sedona. 15 minutes to get back down again. A great after dinner activity when it's not so hot!

If you want to see the Sedona area in 360 degree views, this is the place to go. Medium difficulty but well worth the effort. Takes about an hour each way. Don't go if there is a lightening storm on the horizon.
