We stopped here during a quick trip to Sedona. It was a nice hike. The scenery was great. Just be prepared and bring plenty of water.

This trail is tough. Okay, I'm >50 and was walking it solo...and somehow on the first rise I took a massive wrong turn that found me clinging up a steep creek bed that almost killed me.. But I do a lot of hiking. But it...More

The total length according to our step tracker was 5.86 miles round trip. The hike is pretty intense with a fair amount of scrambling. There are a couple of false summits. The views are absolutely incredible. So beautiful. We only had time for one hike...More

Quite a steep hike but I think the views rival the Grand Canyon. It may sound crazy but I really thought it was amazing.

Great hike with a 2000 ft elevation gain! Use of all fours required in some places but nothing too crazy. Others were right when they say there are a couple places you think you've reached the top but you haven't. Just look around, if you...More

The views aren't the only thing taking your breath away! Plan on 5 hours and lots of water to make it to the top and work your way back down. Beyond amazing! Impossible to take a bad photo. The trail is quite technical and steep...More

If you are going to do 1 hike in Sedona ( and if you are pretty fit and reasonably brave) this is the one. The views were spectacular, and a bit different around each corner. We were fortunate to do this hike on a cooler...More

A steep, exposed trail - the 1900'+ elevation gain over the 2.5 miles to the top net you expansive views. Start early to avoid the crowds and the heat.

Is this trail easily passable in winter? I was reading about some of the other Sedona hikes and it seemed that in January some were icy/snowy and hard to get through.

This hike is amazing year round. Like any higher altitude hike it's important to know if there's been RECENT snow or rain. You can always cut it short if conditions indicate. Challenging, beautiful (especially at the top... More
