Great trail, definitely would recommend going from west to east for an easier walk. We came from Devil’s Bridge.

fun not too hard

Pretty neat trail with some amazing views. A lot of bird life going on deep within the trail once you get above the tree line. A few steep ascensions but other than that a simple yet decently long hike. My dog didn’t have too much trouble with those few steep climbs so neither should anyone else.

The view is amazing !

It’s so beautiful here . Different view all around you . My favorite one !

Easy hike , the view is not bad !

Short hike. Took only about 10 minutes to climb up but the views are still stunning. A hike that almost anyone can do.

We tried to hike this trail during the New Year Eve snowstorm. Went clockwise and made it to the Hangover trail before turning back. Came back on Jan 11th and completed the loop. I’m glad we turned around the previous hike. I’d consider this hike easy if not for the scrambling needed with a few places on Hangover. Favorite Sedona hike.

Spectacular hike. I went counter clockwise per others recommendations, and was super happy with that choice. Going counter clockwise wouldn't be bad, but definitely more of a work out. Lots of terrain types, and breathtaking views throughout (particularly from the top of Brins Mesa). It took me 4 hours, but I stopped a lot and added another mile of distance on side trails.

Beautiful trail with many hops over the creek. I did this trail during winter and was a bit icy.

This is a great hike and accommodates various skill levels. A few difficult areas with a bit of scrambling but an overall moderate rating. If you are scared of heights there may be a few challenging spots for you. Beautiful as a sunrise hike, quite shaded for the majority. If you continue all the way you will end up on an expansive Mesa with stunning 360 degree views, I didn't want to have to come back down. A little difficulty navigating signage on the plateau, other than that this one is definitely worth the work getting to the top.

Really easy hike. Can be done within an hour. But does have some pretty great views.

When I hike i prefer to be completely out in the wilderness. The only reason this hike didn’t score a 5 for me was because a decent amount was spent close to a dirt road where I heard several trucks coming and going, as well as on the back side of the hike the steady hum of the highway down below. This typically would be a deal breaker for me, however I would absolutely go back and do this hike again. Magnificent views, very clearly marked, and as others have said, you really get to see a little bit of everything that Sedona has to offer. 2 days ago there was still a few spots with 4ish inches of snow, however it’s totally doable in standard footwear (I encountered one hiker with poles, winter coat and shoe spikes. He looked me up and down goes “Well. I won’t comment on your footwear, but we are really glad to have this gear”. 10 minutes later I was passed by a trail runner in a T-shirt and Nike’s

The trail is in perfect condition and provides a scenic, easy in and out hike through lush greenery with spectacular views of the red rocks that Sedona is famous for.

I hiked this yesterday after a decent snow the day before. I was able to follow the trail even covered in ~4" of snow. Definitely more challenging with the snow, but by no means would I say this hike is only for experienced hikers without snow--the first 3.5 miles or so are flat through the canyon and simply a nature walk. The views were stunning while summiting.

Nice and easy dog friendly hike with beautiful views!! Highly recommend the last scramble up the rocks to see the view!! 2 miles round trip!

Beautiful views from the ground of the rock formations and canyon. The trail end does not have any Wow factor and the views are consistent along the whole trail. We did it in the winter and spring or summer might be more fun with the creek crossings and blooming wildlife. I would recommend this trail as a sight seeing activity rather than a trail hike. Good to go in 1 mile and out or for an easy day walk.

Beautiful hike! The scenery was gorgeous all the way through. Going up the mesa was a good climb, but other than that, it was a pretty easy hike. So many different scenic changes throughout and a couple of neat discoveries you might not expect make it even more interesting. I'd recommendend it!

amazing views all the way up and at the top. conditions are still very icy from the snow. just makes a couple of the turns a little treacherous but as long as you have really good shoes you will be okay. A little scared but okay.

I hiked this trail back in September on a weekend. Parking was a nightmare so beware. The trial itself was pretty cool even though it was pretty crowded. We packed our water shoes and our lunch, so once we got to the end of the trail, we changed shoes and continued on past the point that most people turned around. By this point, there was no one else around us (which was awesome) so we ate our lunch in the shade on a big rock. Overall I thought this trail was kind of boring though. It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but, it took us a long time and there wasn’t all that much to see. You’re basically stuck in a canyon looking at the same thing for miles. I also got stung by a yellow jacket on our hike out. That could happen anywhere, but it didn’t add to my excitement of the hike. We did this hike in between our stays in Sedona and Flagstaff, so it was nice to see some greenery. But, I think next time, I’d find a hike with a little more umph to it!

Great hike! Did the 5.2 mile Brins Mesa to Soldiers Pass to Jordan/Cibola pass loop at 7 1/2 months pregnant* and found it to be perfect - a good challenge at times but a great mix of ups and downs, alternating such that it was completely manageable. Great milestones to look forward to (7 sacred pools, sinkhole, etc) and keep you going!

*caveat that I have worked out - weights, spin or yoga - consistently 3-4 times per week since becoming pregnant

This is an absolutely gorgeous hike with breathtaking views!! I’m so glad we did it, but that being said, I’m not going to lie...for a 40-
something Midwest mom with an overactive adrenaline response, I was terrified a few times! I had no idea we would be scrambling up a mountain on a hike listed as moderate, but I would definitely do it again, and if my husband and I can do it, you probably can too. We went clockwise and noticed the sign for Hangover at the end indicates it is for expert level hikers and bikers. Glad we didn’t have our kids, and ready for a Bloody Mary afterwards!! Perfect in early January. Took us about 4 1/2 hours.

Great hike, even for kids and even seniors. Many switchbacks to the top. I have hip and knee replacements, but I navigated all. I concur with all reviews, incredible views at the top. You will be on a large mesa with many views 360 degree views.

This is a superb trail. It is always scenic and frequently spectacular. There is a wide variety of terrain and enough challenge to make it interesting. On January 3 when we did this hike there was still 3-6 inches of snow in some shaded and/or north facing sections but it was manageable with low hikers. There are some narrow sections with somewhat steep drops and a couple of spots where scrambling is required. This may unsettle some people but I think most experienced and reasonably fit hikers will enjoy the variety presented by this trail. Highly recommended.

Some of the best views of red rocks you will have on foot in Sedona, plus a nice peek at Enchantment resort. I hiked it during winter (Jan 2) when the last 2/3 was snow-covered which made it extra soft yet not slippery since this is not a very steep trail. I got a late start - 3 PM - but going at a clip, made it round-trip by 5:45 just past sunset (late start worth it to have the entire final 4 miles ALL to myself on what is normally a busy trail - I didn’t see or hear a soul). If hiking in winter especially late in the afternoon wear footwear with good tread and warm clothing - Canyon cools fast once the sun gets low.

Great views in every direction.

Heavy snowfall made this hike very enjoyable on NY day.

This trail was pretty nice. There were about 3 inches of snow today, and it would have been impossible to follow the trail without previous hikers’ footprints—very little signage throughout. There were some pretty portions and vistas, but a lot of boring trekking in between, for me. This hike clocked in at 5.4 miles.

Note: this route was fine in the snow. A few slippery spots, but very navigable in the right boots.

This could very well be the most beautiful trail in Sedona. The views at cowpies are amazing. Not many people on the trail. The hangover trail can be scary at times. Def need proper shoes and not doable when icy
