The hike from Cresent Moon Ranch parking lot was awesome. After crossing the creek the trail climbed at an easy pace for the most part, at least until you began the climb up Cathredal Rock itself. The trail passes the creek at one point for those wishing to dip, and it is just beautiful and a great resting spot. Good shoes, camera, walking stick, plenty of water, and lunch makes the trip enjoyable and not rushed.

Take a trip round to the back of the rock at sunset - where the locals go - and get stunning views of the rock as the moon rises, with the stream in the foreground. Wonderful place to visit.

The best place to see Cathedral Rock is at Red Rock Crossing. You can get to it by taking Red Rock Loop Road off of 89A in West Sedona. There are paths that take you along Oak Creek and lots of beautiful spots for a picnic. It's one of our favorite places in Sedona.

Great trail up with fantastic views. One of my favorite hikes. And for those who like a less challenging hike, you can go up a ways and take the trail that goes around, rather than up.

We decided to take the steep hike (but there are less steep options that are a bit longer - max 2 miles to get to the top). - getting to the top was one of the most amazing experiences - I can barely put the view into words. We stayed on top for nearly an hour - just taking everything in. Truly one of the best moments in my life!
