easy hike some awesome views.

on Fay Canyon Trail

1 hour ago

Very pleasant hike with a great view if you scramble up the rocks at the end. We also did a side trail up to an arch that was slightly steeper and less trafficked. This was one of three hikes we did while in Sedona (others were Cathedral Rock and Devil's Bridge), and we were happy with our choices!

For my second hike in AZ, this was pretty decent. For those complaining about Sharing a road with 4 wheelers and trucks than just take the chuck wagon trail and bypass that. It’s quiet, has better views and you don’t have to complain to people about how crappy the hike is because of vehicles. While true that devils bridge is busy, I found most people to be respectful and take photos for other people while keeping it moving. At times it’s was comical watching people do head stands and such. Go summit Everest if you don’t want to run into people. That’s half the fun of hiking and enjoying nature with other people! The views are great and the hike was enjoyable. Don’t over think it and just do it.

Easy hike with wonderful views, one of my favorites in the area!

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.

Very dissapointing. Boring trail, chunk of it runs alongside a resort with some barbed wire, too many houses in view. No great viewssssss, then decends into a rather unkempt forest. Maybe its better in the spring when theres water? Who knows. Worst hike in my week in Sedona. There a many amazing trails here. Im at a loss as to why anyone would bother with this.

great hike for the whole family and amazing views of the red rocks.

Excellent trail. The last part is in the shade, so, dress for it. Scenery is breathtaking.

Such a fun hike. Definitely more than 1.2 miles from the parking lot to the top. Not too hard if you are semi in shape: make it to the top, so worth it. Amazing views!

Nice long trail with good views and fun stream crossings. Got lost a few times so helped that people were around. I bet this is beautiful in the fall with the leaves changing!

Great trail reminded us of the PNW with all the pine trees.

This was my second time on this trail ! Totally love it .It is So worth hiking to the end!! The first time I hiked it I got to enjoy flute music from someone way up on the highest peak just as you enter the trail, the sound was incredible! I could hear it for a long distance as I continued on my hike! I hoped I could experience it again , maybe next time. As I started my hike it was warm then hot , as I entered the forest the temperature dropped , which was very inviting! Meditating and experiencing the vortex areas is very spiritual for me ! Try it you’ll like! You’ll see!

Nice hike - definitely add the Chuckwagon Trail as opposed to the road. It was not as heavily trafficked as I feared from the comments and everyone was super chill and nice. If you’re a serious climber/hiker, I can see why you might be underwhelmed, but for the “Average Joe” it was quite enjoyable.

Loved this hike. It was definitely difficult but very doable since it’s so short. The views from every spot on the trail were beautiful and the top was just stunning. Good hiking shoes are a must. We found that there was enough parking but would assume that the parking gets full quickly in better weather. I would recommend using the gps coordinates from this app to find the trailhead because putting “cathedral rock trailhead” into google maps took us to the wrong spot.

This hike is fun and easy and the view at the end after a short rock scramble was beautiful.

This hike is so full of people, even in December. The parking lot is located 2 miles from the actual trailhead and that 2 miles is not exciting at all. It’s a rocky 4x4 road. We “cheated” and took an ATV to the trailhead. The actual hike by our standards (experienced hiker) was not difficult and the bridge is actually quite beautiful. There was a line to take photos on the bridge but people were respectful and got on and off quickly. There are much more exciting hikes in Sedona, even in this general area. I would have rated this even lower had we made the full hike from the parking lot.

Fun! Definitely steep and difficult at some points, but overall it was totally worth it.

Was a blast! Cant wait to do it in the warmer months to swim in the water holes!

I took my mom (50y/o) on this trail because some of the reviews said it was easy-moderate. However, mom only made it about 1/2 way up the scramble before she decided not to carry on. I continued on up to the base of cathedral rock, but didnt finish the trail for fear of her trying to catch up and injure herself. I'd say it is an easy/moderate trail for experienced hikers, but for those who are not, it would be rather difficult. Be careful, and certainly wear hiking boots.

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!

We drove in late in the afternoon and hiked this right before sunset on December 7th. Took about an hour and a half with us spending about a half hour at the top.

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!

Great trail. Moderate, easy and then sometimes butt burner. Keep in mind tho that the red sand is fine and if it has rained, which it had the day before we got there, it will be like clay and stick to your shoes or wheels, which for us having a new SUV we needed to get our horse brush out to clean them before putting in our vehicle.

This hike was pretty underwhelming. People are literally lined up before the bridge taking turns with pictures. Kind of took away from the beauty of it. For those with a fear of heights- the bridge looks scarier than it is. Walk up to it and you’ll see how much space there is to walk on it! Views are pretty! The spot is just too touristy.

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.

Awesome!!!! loved it! we hiked from chuckwagon up. Only moderate area is the last 1/4 mile up to the bridge. We would definately do this hike again. Breathtakingly beautiful!

Nice easy hike.

Stunning formation. Unique, must do hike.

Great, quick hike! Not as long as noted on the app. Some challenging spots, but otherwise pretty easy. Beware for the people doing dangerous yoga poses on the bridge...risking life’s for the gram.
