My husband and I took our puppies up here and it was awesome! We all really enjoyed the hike. There wasn’t too many people which made it very nice =)

This hike was my first hike in Sedona and I was not disappointed. I expected it would take me about 3-4 hours but I ended up staying on the trail for 6 because I was stopping and enjoying the diverse scenery. As soon as you pass the retreat (which was loud due to construction) you run across a vortex tucked away in the brush. I noticed a few colorful totem poles that lead me right to it. As you continue through the canyon it turns from low brush to a beautiful Forest. I was surprised to see fallen yellow leaves, moss & grass out in the "desert". The trail only gets rugged towards the end, but is totally doable for inexperienced hikers. Once you make it to the end, there is a nice size space to sunbath on the rocks and enjoy the scenery. On my way back down I found another vortex area tucked off the side of the trail. I enjoyed a short break there before making my way back to the trail head. I highly recommend taking this hike!

Fairly easy hike. Can get slippery at the end but beautiful.. Best in Jan/Feb after a good rain

Beautiful

Great easy trail. make sure to find the hidden trail across the creak about halfway back, this will take you up a steep climb to an archway in the rock, and a great spot to relax for awhile. The views are great.

Would go 1000 times again. Pretty rocky at the end but worth every second!
Bring water !!!

Ild call this moderate for sure. It’s lots of loose rock, sorta steel, and a bit of both at the end. With the effort though!

Nice easy hike.

Gorgeous views on the east side of the mountain. Never very crowded. Easy place to hike where there are people, but you can still feel like you are by yourself. A lot of small trails to run around on, and nothing overly strenuous.

Nice trail, great views, elevation gain not too bad. Only drawback is trail can get rocky in places.

A nice trail for a morning hike. Lots of traffic - hikers, runners and cyclists - but all were super chill.

Took much longer than expected with my seven- and nine-year old kids. But totally doable as a family.

Great workout trail but not my favorite for views. If you want more moderate uphill take it clockwise steeper grade counterclockwise. will probably do trail again in spring as i think there will be a lot of desert blooms to see then. Travel safe.

Too many tourist.

Great trails a little rocky, so watch your step. Overall a nice hike with plenty of mountain views.

Beautiful scenery! Very short walk small hill at the beginning. Took less than an hour to walk there take pictures and walk back.

Need a red rock pass!!!
Amazing views. Went during the week and had the whole cave to myself. You definitly should bring a hiking stick to assist in the downward decent. Loose gravel is tricky. Took roughly 50 minutes going up. I thought it would be a much faster hike being only 3 miles but the elevation gane is over 3000’. Very dense desert vegetation once you are about halfway up the trail. Very picturesque. Would not recommend for young kids.

Did this with my dog today. Great hike! It gets a bit harder towards the end. All of the previous reviews are quite accurate.

it was a great hike..make sure you don't leave the trail..beware of jumping cacti

Very short hike in. Visited in the off season, and went for the sunset. It was still very busy, so get there well in advance. Take a blanket so you can sit along the edge and hang out.

So much fun for a quick hike

Nice hike. Gradual climb so not strenuous but kinda challenging for my parents (in their 70’s) due to the rocky path. Very cool drawings on rock face and lots of boulders that the kids love to climb. Some water in the pools but it wasn’t flowing.

Had a wonderful time hiking the trail!

Awesome hike! Everyone is pretty accurate that it is about 45 minutes up and a great sight! It’s amazing how good of a view you can get after just a little bit of hiking!

Go early. Hit the first parking lot. Stay to the left most the trail and through the orange fence. When we came down we probably passed 20+ people going up.

FANTASTIC hike, just when you're starting to get a little tired, you're there, and the playoff is the picture you can take.

Loved

Took kiddos (2yrs and 8mon) great hike overall !

Great cool down after Bear Mountain hike. Be a good walk if it was really warm because the trail is situated in the trees. Had to piggyback my husband out at this point. Enjoy!

The hike was just OK. Trail was poorly marked and we had to refer to our GPS often to figure out where to go. It wasn’t very scenic and I didn’t feel like I had a workout. Some areas had a bit of an incline but the majority was fairly flat. I wouldn’t do this again. There are so many prettier trails to tackle.

Parking space is extremely limited, due to this we did not do the hike
