Beautiful hike! Amazing views

This hike is very challenging but well worth it to see the spectacular views! Not meant for shoes that have no grip.

Easy hike around the airport perimeter. Your up on the Mesa, every turn offers a great view of the surroundings. I'd reccomend it just for picture opportunities.

Very nice day hike, beautiful views!

Beautiful hike! Recommend hiking boots not sneakers. Several areas of crossing water on rocks and sometimes had to step in water to cross. Not dangerous, just wouldn’t think anyone would want wet sneakers. The whole trail has gorgeous views.

great views for not that much effort. enjoyable to walk around the entire summit.

There is one part where it's bad, but it's the only place that it is that bad. Otherwise I was not scrambling.

Some difficult footing, I'd recommend hiking poles. This one's tough on the knees. Be prepared for you gain, loss, gain loss in elevation. A long one but well worth it. Great scenery and fall colors!

Awesome views and trail!

Nice fairly easy hike with some uphill, this hike is mostly shaded but not completely so bring a hat and sunscreen. If you are wanting to go to the Arches keep an eye out for a trial that will ver off to the right, it is not marked and VERY EASY TO MISS!

Remember to respect the environment and leave no trace.

This trail gets 5 stars because the views along the way and the view at the top is totally worth it - but it is definitely a difficult trail. I would consider it more rock-climbing as there are multiple places where I was crawling on my hands/knees. I took my 60 pound boxer and had to lift him up/down in a couple spots. Even if you're in shape, the elevation changes so quickly it gets hard to breathe - my suggestion is take a couple breaks along on the way up and enjoy the views!

When you get to the trail head it will fork off , go right! I have done both ways and the views are best when you go counter clock wise. Be warned you will have a nice up hill right off the bat that will keep you thinking " I'm I there yet?!" Once the up hill battle is over the hike will get easier. This hike will take you to beautiful views of Sedona. Also if you do the full loop you can see Soldiers Arches, Devils sink hole and Seven Sacred pools. Dog friendly hike as well :)

11/10/2018 Trail was nice, however, if you follow the All Trail map the path turns on a foot path that is not maintained. This was not mentioned in the reviews . Very doable easy to moderate trail and we would do it again

Very nice and easy trail, however, it is a very heavy trafficked trail. Views on one side are great, other side not so much. Parking can be difficult at the trail head because of the amount of people.

Gorgeous views particularly as you reach the top. Have to scrabble a bit to reach the pass, and we definitely were feeling intimidated when the wind was blowing because the ledge to climb up wasn’t very wide, but the hike was worthwhile!

Awesome hike up...views along the way are fantastic. We came in via Yavapai trail head and hiked Slim Shady to Templeton to get to bottom of Cathedral Rock Trail. We didn't do the Templeton loop and just backtracked so round trip it was 11km for the whole trip. Slim Shady and Templeton were easy and very few people.

Fantastic trail. Wife thought because distance was short it would be easy. Be prepared!

Beautiful not crowded!

Great hike but parking options are limited. Parking lot was full before 9am on Sunday.

Easy trail to a lookout. In November we went at 6 am and the colors were really good as the sun hit the red rocks at about 7 am glad we waited for the sun to rise over the mountains and hit the red rocks to the west! Beautiful!!!

This is a phenomenal trail for one that is rated easy: incredible views within the first mile and very little elevation gain. If you have just one hour in Sedona this is the trail for you. Less than 3 minutes from Rte 179. We had come out of the Grand Canyon the day before and our legs were shot - this was the perfect easy trail to still get a taste of Sedona.

The only downside: the perfect solitude and quiet was obliterated first by a pink Jeep and then by a band of ATVs . Would have been a 5 star without that

Love this hike as well. Chicken point is amazing

Very beautiful, lots of shade and seen lots of Blue Jays

Quick easy walk with beautiful scenery...

I love Boynton Canyon - beautiful red rocks and amazing positive energy throughout!

Amazing hike. We found the arch and cave off to the left when hiking down soldiers pass trail. So epic.
