Make sure you take a right when you get to the fork on the trail. Left for spring (top of waterfall) right for dam (bottom). Took about 7 hours pacing myself and spending time at the waterfall. Hiked in mid April and water was great!

Can four wheel and shoot. Enjoy the wilderness and have fun!

Was absolutely worth the wait and yes although a tough hike, with plenty of water, proper shoes, snacks & laughter from friends, recommend this hike. Get permit and enjoy.

Nice hike in, long, and fairly intense but manageable on the way out. Only real
Shit part is that first mile back up, it’s the steepest. Swimming hole totally worth everything! I encourage anyone who is a good swimmer to go into the toilet bowl. So fun. Bring good swimming goggles. Fill your water bladder up at the beginning of the springs, where it’s filtered. It’s clean water, straight from the earth. Enjoy

Amazing! Definitely not easy on the way back up but it’s tolerable! It was my first longer hike in many years, and i felt extremely accomplished when I made it back to the top.I can’t wait to go again! One thing... bring A LOT of water! I brought 5L and had my last sip as I got to the car.

Go early as soon as the gate opens at 8. Excellent views of the rock formations from all degrees. Be sure to stop at the Mesa. Lots of rock steps as part of the trails. Well marked in most places. Just follow the footsteps if you can’t tell which way to go. No bicyclists, jeeps, or casual hikers in sandals. Panoramic views everywhere!

Had a lot of fun. A few tough parts but nothing beyond 4 High in my TJ on 33's. A few blind spots where you need to be wary of oncoming traffic. There were a couple of spots where the trail was a little confusing but overall it was easy to navigate.

Great hike!

Decent place to go for an off road adventure - but there are much better and scenic drives to take

Easier short trail that was well marked. Path to summit was was wide and gradual. No need for hands and kids can easily enjoy but careful at the top with young children. Great views of where we were staying for the week and some of the other trails we hiked to the west. (Andante and Chimney Rock) Nobody out at 7am but by the time we were leaving at 8 it was picking up. Would also be a great evening hike to view better colors in uptown Sedona.

The hike back up is difficult.. the view at the bottom is worth It!

Super sweet trail. Great 360 degree views.

Awesome trail but the permit does start 4-1 now and is no longer in May.

Hiked on 3-26-2018 in the afternoon. As many here all down hill then all uphill. Should have started a little earlier to spend more time there. I was hustling in both directions 1.15 hours down and 1.45 hours up. Fun hike with many views and places to explore. Not for young kids. Be prepared with water.

We hiked out from the soldier pass trailhead. Went up soldier pass, turned right at the Brin mesa trail sign and and onto Jordan trail to complete the 7 mile loop. It was an amazing hike. The trails were well marked all the way through. Once at the Jordan Trail head follow the Jordan trail/ cíbola pass signs, both trails merge. Follow the Jordan trail signs to the Sink hole to get back on to the Soldier pass trail.

It was a great hike. Rocky terrain and awesome views!!!

We did Soldiers Pass to Brins Mesa to Cibola Pass Trail. Everything was well marked except one section of Cibola Pass. Sign said Jordan trail both ways and no sign for Cibola. Luckily there was someone there who knew where to go. Follow Jordan trail in same direction u r going. It’s a fairly easy hike, with lots of flat ground. Some high elevations but very manageable. You are on the interior almost the whole trek. Lots of great views: Devils kitchen, seven sacred pools- these are on Soldiers Pass. Very quiet!! Very relaxing! Husband thought it was a little boring but it fine. Of figuring out which ones to do in Sedona. I would do this first since I think others have more of “wow” factors. Doe Mountain and Airport Mesa Loop have more wows but are more difficult! Have fun hiking Sedona, it’s a great place!!!!

Very nice trail! The end with the waterfall gives you strength to go back up! Take you time and drink lots of water! Dont try yo take nice pics over the waterfall edge! Helicopter ambulances cost a fortune!

Really fun, quick hike with a great payoff! Recommended route for the loop is counterclockwise.

amazing trail, the springs look straight out of Lord of the Rings. it's a constant climb on the way back from the springs which are a must see! explore the pool depths because cliff jumping is worth it. the far cave is also worth exploring.

Lots of trails but please take out what you bring in and help protect this land.

Did 5 mike loop (in 3 hours) - Soldier pass, to Brins Mesa, to Jordan back to soldier pass. Amazing views. Variety of terrain which was cool. We did pass a couple people who were a little lost but we thought the trail was marked pretty well. Got pretty windy up on the top. Was helpful for us to take picture of map before we departed parking lot. Parking lot had about 10 spots.

I love the 5 pools or whatever its called LOL absolutely beautiful when theres actually water in them. The big cavern? is stunning and we saw a snake so that was cool. We normally go off trail and wander into the forest a bit.
