I'm sending in this review in August, but the visit was six months earlier in February after a big snowstorm, which made the trip on this trail particularly beautiful. Be sure to follow the trail carefully, rather than walking up the road, if you want the best scenery. The road itself was at one time the primary route from Sedona to Flagstaff, but was replaced almost exactly a century ago by the road up Oak Canyon. The old road is still open, but don't try it without a stout high clearance vehicle, and be prepared for winter closures.
I've checked the box saying that bathroom facilities are available, since there are pit toilets at the primary trailhead. Also, there is no fee charged *if* you have purchased a Red Rocks pass that lets you park in the Red Rocks area. For those "of a certain age" (like this reviewer), you'll likely save a few bucks if you purchase a lifetime National Parks pass, available at the main visitor centers.
