It's only a 400 foot climb from off the valley floor, but once on top of Doe Mt mesa, the views from the point on the other side are super! A trail meanders around the topside rim, which is easy hiking as once up, the rest is all flat walking. You can go up and about and back again in less than two hours. Try it!

This is a trail that is always climbing. Make sure that you wear hiking boots, since this will help you on parts of this trail that are very rocky. Since it is a gradual climb, you don't realize how high you have hiked. The views are spectacular from many parts of this trail.

If you are lucky you will also get to see some beautiful birds on this hike. We saw many Western Blue Birds that were brilliant in the sunshine.

If you go when there is snow on the trail just be careful not to slip on any of the ice patches.

You do need to post a Red Rock Pass for parking.

You won't be sorry that you made this hike when you see the views!

Great trail (one rocky bit in the middle) but easy for the most part. Takes a leisurely 45 minutes up. Make sure you mark the trailhead when you come out on the mesa top, and not just run out to admire the view...because it's the only way down; and hard to find amongst the similar-looking scrub and junipers once you've walked away.

I loved this climb. It was steep in some places, but overall not a strenous hike. The trail is not well marked in some places, so we ended up getting off-track and finding our own way for half of this. Once you get to the top, the view is amazing! You end up on a plateau with 360 views and can walk all around the top. We have lots of great pictures with Sedona spread out in the background. I also liked when a helicoptor flew by and we were higher up than it was :)

My wife and I did this hike in January in the snow. It snowed all the way up and there was about 4" on the ground. The trail up is steep in places and was a little tricky in the snow, but it should be fairly easy in good weather. When you get to the top, take careful note of the the gap you climb through just as you reach the top. It can be tricky to find on the way back and it is the only way down. The top if the mesa is very flat and you can find several paths that go around the perimeter and across the middle.The views are great in all directions. There are good places to sit for lunch or just to relax. The trailhead is only about 15 minutes from West Sedona so the hike can be done in a morning or afternoon.
