Easy hike even with small children. Very pretty! There was rain the day before we went so the pools had water in all of them however not very much. It would be cool to see them during a rain storm and watch the water cascade.

Nice hike and gorgeous views! Love the pools but they are not always full of water so get there during the rainy season or early spring!

We enjoyed this quick easy hike to a beautiful location. Parking area at Soldier Pass trailhead is limited (only 14 spaces). Easy trail to walk up. Can be heavily traveled by mountain bikers. Good photo opportunities of Coffee pot rock & black tip agaves.

Don't get me wrong: this area off of Soldiers Pass offers some of the most interesting hiking in Sedona, including Devil's Kitchen, a sinkhole very close to the pools that is a must see! But, go for the hike, not the destination. The "seven sacred...More

Nothing too strenuous- no need to overpack for this one. Bring a water bottle but go early to avoid heavy traveled pathways. Beautiful as usual :)

This is definitely worth seeing. It was one of the most spectacular views of Sedona. It has a nice wilderness feel to it.
