Beautiful views, trail is easy to follow.

Easy trail and lots of shaded area and the view is beautiful!

amazing hike done MLK weekend 2018. view at the end is beautiful

Trail offers great views and an amazing scenery. My girlfriend and I were able to do this hike quite easily and we are not regular hikers. Going to see and experience the inside of the Soldiers arch is well worth the entire hike. The 7 sacred pools are pretty cool too. Good hiking boots/shoes are recommended since there are a lot of rocks and mud that you can step on/in. Great hike and will definitely make this a yearly trip!!

Great trail with great views! Whole family loved it and got great photos.

This was a nice quick hike! We did have a difficult time actually staying on the trail, however the AllTrails app helped. The view was beautiful, but don’t drive all the way out just for this hike. Lastly, as mentioned in previous reviews, this was more of a moderate hike!

Easy hike that doesn’t take too long. Only a few good views but those few views are awesome. Ends at a T intersection with another trail. Definitely worth the hike.

Beautiful hike throughout. Good mix of woods and open space! I did it in the cold rain which I don’t recommend but it was still beautiful. Be careful though because it’s easy to start heading the wrong direction so pay attention! It’s easy to realize and find your way back on track at least!

been there and it's amazing!

Fun hike. Relatively easy. Just some areas really change in elevation. Beautiful scenery all around, wherever you are on the trail. Fresh smell of pine. We went between 10am and 1pm and there was very low traffic.

The end offered a great view if you climb up the rocks

Lovely view of Sedona at the top.

Giving this a 5/5 even though we didn’t fully finish. Originally planned to do Solider Pass with the Mesa loop to add some more distance and views. About an hour into the hike we got hit with some snow which started to pick up as we got to the end of Solider Pass so we decided to turn back to avoid getting lost. Pretty well marked and trafficked is not too difficult to find your way around unless it ends up snowing a few inches while you’re up there.

Awesome rock structures, sink hole, riparian forest. Do the loop with Bryn Mesa but don’t take the Jordan Trail unless you don’t mind following electrical wires. Soldiers pass =great hiking. Decent elevation and good workout!

3 stars because of its underwhelmed ending. The main part of the hike is the sink hole but it is cool but not as exciting as the other hikes around the area, hikes like devils bridge, cathedral rock and bear mountain. Definetly do not do this hike before doing some of the other ones in the area.

Great hike. Beautiful views. Stay on path easy to get lost!!! Must do while in Sedona....

Went with wife and pups last weekend. Parking opens at 8, get to the trailhead before 8:30 if you want a spot. Also you don’t have to listen to or see the Jeep tours if you go early which is nice. Sedona always has the most beautiful hikes. The sinkhole was awesome and the pools were pretty neat. Didn’t do the full trail because I was only interested in finding the cave. Look up online how to get there. It did not disappoint. If you’re physically capable, do yourself a favor and go to the end of the cave and climb the boulders that go out the very top. The view is amazing.

Park at the Jordan Rd trail head and take the clockwise eye via Cibola, then up soldiers to Brins Mesa and back to the parking lot. Excellent walk. Moderate is accurate

Easy hike but offers some of the awesome picturesque spots.

The trail was very hard to follow, got lost at least five times if not more. Was unable to find the cave/arches and the sacred ponds were very underwhelming. A long distance for little reward. Parking space was very limited as well.

This is a MODERATE OUT-AND-BACK trail that takes you to an amazing vista (though there are plenty of vistas along the way). It starts out behind the high school, but after a couple hundred feet, the school is out of site. Given the incline and rocky trail, this is definitely moderate, not easy. But its a leisurely hour or less to the top and well worth it.

Great views! There is a large network of trails in this area and numerous trails that link up to this trail. Pay attention to your direction as you can easily start walking on another trail and not realize it. They are all great trails so can’t really go wrong, but you may end up on a longer hike than you initially planned on.
Great views and landscapes along the way! Love this trail!

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

The fork that leads to the arches is 1.3 miles from the parking lot. The scramble up to the arches is well worth the effort!

very easy nice hike but I did get lost a few times

Amazing!! We are two fit people (male and female) and we did both the whole of this one and the Sedona lookout part up at the top as well. It took us 5 and a half hours and my Apple Watch clocked the whole thing at 12.38 miles. Breathtaking views at he Sedona lookout part at the top. The actual end of this trail lookout is much less spectacular. Honestly barely worth it except to say you did it. Going down was much harder than coming up due to the rocks moving all around. Including stops at both top lookouts we started at 10am and finished at 430pm. So we spent about an hour enjoying the views. Note- the first part to the First Bench marker is the hardest part. Smooth sailing from there.

Good hike, don’t know about moderate rating through , mostly hard packed trails

Great trail--has a little bit of everything. The trail markers could definitely be improved though!
