One of the most classic vistas in Sedona, Cathedral Rock offers great photos, and a pleasant hike, if a little bit confusing.
We planned to be there at the end of the day, so that we could catch the sunset. After a long drive down Verde Valley School Road (which turns to unpaved about ½ way through the trip) and arrived at the trailhead with about 25 mins to sunset. However, the map at the trailhead is a bit confusing, and we went right instead of left, a mistake we didn’t realize til we’d hiked about ¾ mile. After backtracking, and resetting, we were not able to get to the Red Rocks Crossing site prior to sunset. We settled for pictures from the trail -- which were stunning by the way.
It was our last full day in AZ, so we had no chance to try again. I will be going back to get to Red Rocks Crossing at sunset! This is worth the trip!
