Loved the variety of terrain, scenery and elevation.
It seemed a lot longer than 3 miles. beautiful views. I would definitely recommend after stopping by the vortex areas.
This was a great and beautiful hike BUT it is not easy at some points because of the amount that is uphill. Once on the trail there is no shortcut or exit to get off the trail. According to our Fitbits it was roughly 12,000 steps which should convert to 6 miles but everything says this trail is only 3.5. I would do it again if I was better prepared.
Great place to view the sunset, but can get crowded. Very easy hike, even in the dark.
Scenic area. Can get busy.
Harder than we thought due to the narrow path. Have to go a bit slow in the beginning (counterclockwise) due to the unsteady footing. Beautiful views!
I did this one clockwise because the tail end is a bit shadier and I prefer to get the full sun part out of the way first. The views are stunning and it's definitely worth doing. I do think it's a tad more difficult than the 'easy' rating, but not quite moderate. Took me not quite 2.5 hours, though I did stop a lot to enjoy the views. The rocks and the narrow trail just means you have to take it a bit more slowly to ensure safety. I did this at 8am on an August morning and it was HOT! Encountered a few people who did not bring enough water, so definitely prepare for that.
Did this counter clockwise, definitely think that was easier, just less shade towards the end.
Easy trail. Panoramic views.
Panoramic views and a nice hike.
This is a very nice hike. however, ID you have weak ankles this could be difficult for you as this trail is very rocky. For an avid biker like me though this trail was very enjoyable.
I LOVE this trail. You can park halfway up the road (if there's a spot - there are only a few) and it's a simple hike up to the top where the spectacular views are. Or you can drive to the top where the airport parking lot is and have a nice hike down to the bottom of where you head up to where the views are. The views of West Sedona on the way down from the top lot are worth the longer hike in my opinion. Good for all ages and definitely don't forget your camera!!
This path is unsteady and you will have to watch your footing. Stay on the trail it's easy to mistake the horse trail for the footpath.
Excellent first time trail in Sedona.....enough to get acclimated to the region. Great views of the valley!
