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.

My husband and I did this hike in December. As people have said, there is little shade so start early and bring a hat/ lots of water. It took about 2 hours to get up and 1 hour to come back down, with little breaks/stopping. I think the trail is actually well marked... but I can see where people would get confused. As long as you follow the white markings and shoe prints, you should make it there just fine. Coming down is definitely hard on the knees and I can imagine this would be hard for anyone with significant knee problems. We loved all the views and so far this is our favorite Sedona hike!

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.

good easy climb, beautiful at the top! spend some time walking around and seeing all sides at the top!

Nice easy hike.

Great hike! Cross the creek to continue the hike..and to the right. Take your shoes off!

Worth the little bit of a climb. Very beautiful views at the top!

Given that we’ve heard this was one of the “must see” sights in Maui, it was a bit shy of a 5 star experience. This loop is short and flat, but it is beautiful. In any other locale, it would be stunning. It’s currently $25 for vehicle parking (credit card only), but that buys you a three-day pass for Haleakalā National Park, including the summit area. If you have a national park pass, don’t leave it in your hotel.

This is my favorite trail in Sedona and a must for anyone hiking the area. We hiked this trail in early December and the weather was perfect; started with jackets and slowly removed layers as we went on. We started the hike at 10:30am and went counter-clockwise. The changing topography and the views makes the hike fun and keeps your interest. The only down-side is the noise from the jeeps, 4-wheelers, and dirt bikes that drive on the dirt road that runs alongside Munds Wagon, which you barely hear once you’re on Cows Pie.

For those with hiking experience this is a fairly easy trail with some elevation gain where the incline is steady but not strenuous. A pair of shoes with good grip is highly recommended, especially as you round the mountain on Hangover; you need to go down very steep portions and at times shimmying down on your bum is your best option. Don’t always follow the white markers, which are for mountain bikers, because there are better lines just to the left or right of them better suited for hikers.

I read some reviews that say this is not a good trail for children. We brought our 9 year old and he had no issues. He has only hiked a couple times and moved quickly through the trail. He is a little scared of heights and was nervous on a few occasions, where we held his hand to help him out. He loved scrambling down the steep side and enjoyed the break at the saddle. I would suggest this hike for children.

One of the best. Be aware... don’t get lost.

In the winter this is a moderate trail because crossing icy rocks many times isn’t easy. Still fun, but bring a walking stick, carry an extra pair of socks, and have dry shoes waiting in the car.

An easy hike with a gradual elevation gain and several stream crossings. Views are amazing.

Fun, easy nice views

Great views from this high up! Nice little hike.

Breath taking both figuratively and literally.

Amazing panoramic views. Incredible sunset and easy quick get down under darkening skies. Good for dogs and wide summit.

Great fun and short. Getting down was a hoot.

Great cool down after Bear Mountain hike. Be a good walk if it was really warm because the trail is situated in the trees. Had to piggyback my husband out at this point. Enjoy!

Great hike. Loved the views. Lots of places for nice photos. Unfortunately my husband slowed me down. Ended up taking 2 1/2hours start to finish.

October 18- we hiked this trail in the afternoon. It had stunning views throughout. Tons of plants and animals to observe. It took us 1.5 hours. We parked at the trailhead since it had just stopped raining- but it can get pretty crowded. The highlight was listening to coyotes in the distance.

Fantastic hike, a must do in Sedona!!! Our B&B host recommended this, and we loved it! A quick hike (including rocky scrambles), mostly in the shade, with a stunning view at the end and lovely desert plants. When you think you’ve reached the end, keep going... highly recommend. :)

Absolutely beautiful views of the surrounding landscape. We explored the area to the left of the end of trail sign. This hike was worth the scrambling.

Super fun. easy. beautiful. you do walk across the river a few times so be prepared.

Loved this hike. A must at sunset.

Short but challenging technical hike with a few rock scramble areas. Views are worth the climb!

Beautiful views at top.

Great views and the end provides a great place to relax and enjoy for a while. Easy elevation gain and loss. A very enjoyable stroll through beautiful Oak Creek.

Very fun hike and amazing views!
