This trail is 1.4 miles one-way hiking to the Chicken Point. Not too difficult, but you'll definitely get a good workout. My wife and i did this around 5 pm hoping the sun won't be too strong. I would highly recommend this hike either in early morning or late evening during this time of the year. Once you get the... More

Moderately easy hike with excellent vistas, especially at the end at chicken point. The parking area is relatively small, so get there early. We found the signage helpful. The terrain was not difficult, but expect some rocky areas in 3-4 spots.

I needed a new hike today and the Little Horse Trail is now on my favorites list. The views were spectacular and there was plenty of shade along some parts of the trail. Best of all, when I arrived at Chicken Point, I was surprised to see the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow tour there. It was a great tour every... More

My wife and I hiked this trail to Chicken Point and back on a cool May morning. This trail is VERY peaceful. The lack of noise is noticeable. Round trip from our car to Chicken Point was about 3.8 miles. Out is slightly uphill but nothing too bad. We really enjoyed this hike as we were looking for something a... More

This was a beautiful hike with incredible views. It was relatively easy, especially in comparison to the pay off with the views. The path was generally well marked except the very end before it joins to the Broken Arrow trail. We got off path at this point, but it doesn't really matter as it is just going up to get... More

This trail was amazing. The scenery was out of this world. It connects to Chapel trail which leads to the parking lot of the chapel. And back track and go to the chicken point to be on the top of a huge rick for an amazing view.

This hike is moderate. We hiked about 4 miles to the chapel on the hill. There are a variety of trails that off shoot from Little Horse Trail. Beautiful views.

I'm not in great shape but not in terrible shape. Therefore, I was at first a little worried to do this trail even though it was marked as easy to moderate. It was so worth the leap. Was not difficult. Was a slow steady climb up to a gorgeous view. A great trail to start with in Sedona.

Climb is a little strenuous. Wear good hiking shoes. Trail is visibly marked. No restrooms on site. Worth the climb!
