This was a moderately easy climb and has a great view of the canyon behind and the mountains in front of it. Perfect spot for sunset and just relaxing up top.

Our group began our walk up Doe Mt Trail in the dark at 5am, using head lamps and hiking poles. The climb was well worth it... the sunrise view was spectacular. Note that the trail is narrow at some portions, with a steep dropoff.

If you are in the area, please make sure to visit. Stunning vistas, red rocks galore and many, many great places to meditate and catch your breath (at the altitude, mind it!) :-)

Guy at The Hiking House said this was an easy hike. Ha! Ha! The half mile climb to the top is a scramble straight up the mountain. At the top of the mesa we did walk the entire rim which is flat and easy. The...More

Yes, there are trails everywhere, try to get a map of the area. The Sedona Chamber of Commerce is a great source or the US Forest Service!
