This trail is short and sweet and super rewarding. I wanted to spend the day in Sedona and ended up a little lost and to make up for time, I took this hike because it fit my schedule. It was easy but very nice around every bend! Perfect trail for its distance :)
Unexpected surprise at the top. Awesome view. You can see all of Sedona. Worth the hike. Moderate difficulty.
Rather easy, but nice views.Completed it right after doing Bear Mountain as they share a common parking lot.
we were first ones there, fun switchbacks to the top, not too hard, did it with my wife and 13yr old.
Up hill, great views, then down hill.
A great easy hike. My mother did this with a broken arm.
A great quick hike that only takes about an hour or less to summit.
Pretty 360 views of area at top. Moderate switchbacks.
Very pretty. I like this trail in late evening when sun is behind you at the top, morning time the sun makes it hard to see the view
Doe Mt was cool. Little steep up at the end to get to the top. I did this trail at sunset and the view was fantastic!
Easy. We went faster than anticipated as the thunder storm rolled in. Beautiful, easy trail markings and sure footing. Even in the wet.
be sure to do the whole circuit around the top. gorgeous views.
Gorgeous hike. Our jeep tour guide recommended this instead of devil's bridge and we are so glad we took his advice. There are a few steep parts getting to the top but nothing that difficult. The views and solitude at the top are well worth it.
Doe mountain is a great hike. it has spectacular views and is not too difficult. We started at 12 in the afternoon and finished by 2. then we walked around the top of the mesa. It is moderate but well worth it.
This is in our Top 5 list of Sedona trails. Over the past 15 years we have walked it about as many times in Fall, Winter and Spring and it never disappoints. Left the trail head today at 9:00 to avoid the Spring Break crowds and stayed until noon while encountering very few fellow hikers. There are so many excellent vantage points along the edge that you can spend hours there without hearing other people. Fairly steep in short sections, but a good moderate climb to the top. We ambled along the entire edge of the mesa for a total of 6 miles including the walk up and down. If you have time for only one hike while in Sedona, consider this one - can't beat it for a lunch spot
