beautiful trail. towards the halfway point is a steep downhill portion of the trail that you will need to hike back up. bring water and enjoy the view.

This is an incredibly special trail, though quite difficult in many areas especially for people like me afraid of heights! Particularly when the wind is whipping threatening to tear you off the rock face! Not for the faint of heart. Scenery is spectacular the entire trek. We went counterclockwise and at the bottom the sign reads: difficult, technical skills needed! One of the harder hikes, not moderate. Loved the excitement and beauty. Don’t miss this trail.

Must do if you are in the area! Nice loop trail with great views.

good trail. not the best in the area.

Lots of people. Beautiful view!!

So much fun...the sign at the bottom rates this hike as extremely difficult and I would agree with that as you are bouldering for most of it. Challenging but totally worth it...our GPS indicated 10km round trip.

Beautiful not crowded!

Great trail!

Beautiful trail with great views and varying terrain. Did this as a solo hike mid-morning in November and the weather was great.

Definitely a good workout climbing boulders and straight up in spots. Worth it once you are at the top. Parking at trailhead is a challenge

Super good interval trail. Quick turn around time - under 1.5 hours round trip.

This is NOT an easy trail for mountain biking. There are a few sections that are very difficult to ride (especially when going up to Chicken Point) but it’s not that hard to walk your bike through these sections, and it’s worth it!

When you get up to Chicken Point, hang out awhile and enjoy the amazing views. You might be lucky enough to se someone riding “The White Line”. You can continue riding around back to “the Hogs” or go back down and make your first left and rip down Llama. It’s a fun trail that you can ride fast.

Was a long loop trail but so wonderful. Go counterclockwise at the loop.

First trip to Arizona. Finished a class up early by a few hours so hit the trail! Beautiful and great for a beginner with so many other people out and about I felt safe to continue on being a visitor. Glad I packed my water.

No hiking staff needed! You'll need both hands to help negotiate many areas, though you're not really "boulder scrambling"... it's more like climbing steep stairs for most of the hike. There are hand rails where you need them. I was glad I wore low cut, light weight hiking tennis shoes as it allowed me to flex and extend my feet for longer strides from rock to rock (ankle supporting, leather boots would have slowed me down on this hike, though that's what I usually wear for hikes). A Camelback (go figure) style hydration backpack is the way to go... keep your hands free!

Beautiful vista at the end but this trail is much more of a moderate than an easy. There are stretches where you go up rocks on the path that could be hazardous if your footing is not good. A lot of bikes on the narrow parts of the trail make for tough going in some parts. Bring water! Budget more time than you think. Also be sure to wear a hat, as there is little shade.

Great trail, but a ton of people.

Great hike with incredible views. It’s a challenge but definitely not as hard as the signs suggest. Most of the steep areas have hand rails. Parking is difficult, do it on a weekday if possible.

If you can only do one hike, do this one. We took a left at the cow pie/hangover sign post, going counter clockwise around the trail. Bikes have to take the cow pie trail (right at the sign post) to get to hangover trail. I was glad to be heading towards bikers rather than having them come up behind us. The views are amazing. This is a challenging hike...not hard, but definitely on the more difficult side of moderate. It took us about 3.5 hours to do the 8+ miles. We weren’t hustling, but kept a decent pace.

Gorgeous. Didn’t find it as hard as the trail head signage suggests. Lots of climbing, rock scaling, bouldering type hike versus just a walk.

great cardio workout and great views of North Scottsdale and the city.

Loved it! Nice and challenging after making the turn to head back. Very crowded, get there early.

I actually got lost but the hike was great!

A neat trail that is fairly scenic, but not overly so. You get a bit of canyon views and canyon river and not overly crowded like some trails / parking in Sedona.

Great hike, the top looks amazing, bring water.

Favorite hike in Sedona. Awesome variation in ecology and amazing views on Hangover. A lot of the hike in ON the red rocks, which is very cool. Take plenty of water and good, grippy hiking shoes.

You need to be comfortable on smooth (generally not slippery or overly steep) rock faces and narrow trails near drop-offs, but it's not overly technical or arduous. Definitely recommend going counter-clockwise so you're going up the only rock faces that don't have switchbacks.

We arrived around 9 am on a Saturday in early November and were able to park in the lot, although it was definitely filling up.

Great trail! Lots of mountain bikers but we didn’t have problem and there was 4 humans and 2 dogs.

This trail is not for the faint of heart. Marker 27 after the Helipad was all I could do today. A good tip is to not attempt after leg day at the gym. Will be back!!!
