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.

We went here on our innkeeper's suggestion, not sure what to expect. It was a pretty steep ascent, but the view at the top was sooo worth it!

We drove up from Phoenix at 4am to hit this trail around 6:30 and were so glad we did. We had comfortable shade the entire way up, and the entire mountain to ourselves (was a Wednesday). Pace yourself and bring lots of water, carry more than you think you'll need. There are a few particularly challenging parts, but the switchbacks... More

Okay, so we ended our trip out west with a few days in Sedona. After hiking Zion and the Grand Canyon, we were whipped. I had read that an easier hike than Bear Mountain is Doe Mesa. I didn't want to do either, honestly, because my body was tired. We went up Airplane Mesa without much effort and enjoyed that.... More
