Enjoyable hike, very similar to other hikes in Sedona. As busy as Bell Rock is Templeton is not, very low amount of people and the trail is in great condition.

This trail can be combined with a handful of other trails to create a beautiful loop around Cathedral Rock. All trails in this area leave from Yavapai Vista and are well marked throughout each trail and at every intersection. There is no wrong way to hike this! Make it into something you want, just watch out for mountain bikers coming around blind corners!

We started at Yavapi Vista trail head with the goal of getting to Cathedral Rock. This was a beautiful hike, cathedral rock started out way in the distance and we kept watching it get closer and closer. We eventually ended up there and the view was breathtaking! We didn't go all the way to the other end of templeton where it starts at Baldwin, but the few miles we were on it were awesome! It could have been marked better, we got confused a few times.
