This is a short but moderately difficult hike to a mesa overlooking nearly 360 degrees of non-stop views. The trails are narrow; near the top you scramble a bit. But it's all worth it. Wonderful wildflowers; very peaceful.

We did all the "big and best" things in Sedona, and this is one of my favorites of the entire trip! Devil's Bridge was only a few minutes from here and was my other number one favorite!

It wasn't an incredibly strenous hike at all, although the elevation can get to you. It's a 500ft elevation change throughout the .5mi hike (one way). We took our sweet time taking photos, water breaks, and especially exploring the on top once we reached it, and it took us 1.5hours round trip. It could take someone as little as an hour if you're willing to hike at a quicker than average pace. I'm 23 and 14 weeks pregnant, and my mom is 60. We passed a couple that decided to turn around when they were so close to the top...DON'T GIVE UP! The view from the top is so much more than one could ever see from on the trail, so if you're going to hike this, you must go to the very top, IMO.

We bought a parking pass for $5 at the little kiosk there in the parking lot. It was 100% well worth it!! We went at 10am on a Wednesday morning and there were hardly any people on the trail. And although there were some shaded areas on the trail, we wore lots of sunscreen because the top is NOT shaded. One rockier spot toward the very top, but I can say overall it was an easy-moderate hike for us.

A MUST IN SEDONA!

We did this hike same day, but after, the strenuous Bear Mtn. Doe was fairly simple, but still a hike. We saw people, who were clearly non-hikers, in tennis shoes, struggling a bit. It's do-able for all levels, but suggest hiking shoes.

My wife and I enjoy hiking, but many of the trails around Sedona involve some steep areas requiring a degree of climbing. This trail was a very manageable uphill hike with a just a few rocks to climb at the end to reach the top. There are great views in all directions as you walk around the plateau.

Not too difficult, not too long, but what an incredible view! Once you get to the top it's flat so you can walk around to get 360 degree views. Don't miss this one!
