Beautiful and breathtaking view. Easy to see from various spots in Sedona. See the major maps in area to find best viewing.

This is a very popular trail, and the first thing you will notice is the lack of parking. If you miss a spot there is parking along the road at both ends of the lot. It is a short walk to the train head but make the effort. Word of caution. The drop off at the street parking areas is steep. Be careful if you have a low profile vehicle, because you will hit the under carriage.
The first half of the trail is slight and relatively easy. The last leg is a rock climb. If you have trekking polls you will want to bring them. The views from the top will be your reward. There are easy trails around the base for those who just like to walk and enjoy the spectacular formations.

Awesome hike to the top for amazing views, but not for the weary. It's a pretty good hike up, but well worth it if you can make it. :) We loved our hiking day there.

I absolutely love Sedona and Cathedral Rock is one of the best. When living in AZ, I went to sedona 6 times in only 1 year. Driving into the red rocks is an incredible experience and being one with nature in the beauty is perfection. Any trip to Phoenix, Flagstaff or any (relatively) nearby area is not complete without a visit to Sedona and either a jeep tour or hike up to Cathedral Rock.

We went to Cathedral Rock from Back O'Beyond. We hiked a trail that ran around it for about 1 1/2 miles. (We turned back at the sign for the HT trail.) The views were spectacular and there was only one mountain biker on the trail--no one else--which was our good fortune but there were many more people climbing to the top. Because of the September rains there were many different types of wildflowers. I don't know what they were but they were purple, white, orange and yellow. Definitely get there. (We also drove the loop road and got different views on Friday.)
