Great hike! Challenging toward the end as most have said.
From the parking lot it was actually 1.5 miles out and back, not 3 as the app says. The trail is not marked so just keep walking straight and go past the barbwire fence. Also, the road to get to it is all dirt and rock, could be a challenge for smaller cars to navigate (wish we would have known). Bring lots of water! Enjoy

Great views! Not strenuous, but a nice length.. Opens at 8:00am and there is a line to get in, so arrive early. Morning hikiers should dress in layers, can be chilly, but warms up fast. Bring water shoes for continue past the trail end. Worth it!

Great view!

It was wonderful. So beautiful and the mountain air is exquisite. Did the whole thing with our husky and bulldog mix. They loved it and the trail isn't as rough on their paws as the other trails in Sedona which are red rock mostly.

Did this hike on a Weekday morning. Only saw a handful of people the entire time. First half of the trail isn't anything special, but the second half makes up for it. Great easy/moderate hike. Spend some time at the top, the longer you look the more petroglyphs you see.

Awesome hike, amazing views. Definitely worth it.

This trail is awesome and for the most part, very easy. There is a very narrow ledge at the top to access the cave but the view is spectacular from the cave. We did see some other people along the trail but we had a half hour to ourselves when we got to the top.

I wouldn’t recommend it for people not in good shape and comfortable climbing. And please leave you 1 year old and your dog at home. Not appropriate for canines and babies.

Great, enjoyable hike! We would rate the moderate, however, highly recommend hikers be aware of their hiking ability. The hike is very remote and it would be difficult should anything unexpected happen.

The 19-mile drive was gorgeous but took over an hour. The hike was fantastic, gradual incline with a few steep inclines and declines. Make sure to bring more than enough water and snacks!

Overall a fantastic day and well worth for those who want to make the drive!

Great hike! Beautiful views with good challenges.

Nice inline, definalty have a lot of water if it's hot outside, since towards the end it gets fairly steep. Well worth it, beautiful view.

A hidden gem and not very busy. Very few people on the trail. Did it in two and a half hours with a few stops. Very relaxing and wonderful views.

Breathtaking. Fun for the entire family.

Incredibly beautiful views! Tons of people were hiking this trail, some folks were on bikes, some on horseback. As you get closer to the actual bridge, you will be hiking with a lot of other people. There was a huge line and a thirty minute wait just to walk over the bridge. Also dog owners beware. I saw a lot of dogs suffering from heat exhaustion. I would not bring my dogs on this trail. And if you must, bring lotssss of water for them to drink, and to wet them down.

A bit steep for us- but even 3/4 if the way up is quite a view. I’d choose Templeton over this just because the scramble is too treacherous for me!

Great hike with awesome scenery, plenty of river wading for the pup, and a secluded lunch spot if you wade around bend after the trail ends.

Spectacular hike with a variety of steep and very steep parts. This hike is a good workout and requires either loads of photo breaks or a strong heart.

My favorite hike in Sedona!! Well marked trail. Breathtaking views when you arrive at the top. Can be challenging for some in a few spots.

**Read this if you want to take your dog...**
I hiked this amazing trail two weeks ago with my 50 lb 8 year old trail seasoned blue weimaraner who hikes mountain trails 4-7 times a week. The trail was fine, easy even, until we had to climb over the large boulder. We did it but there is a ledge about a foot wide on the other side of the boulder with a 20 foot drop below. My dog was not a fan! Two of us handled her by harness to get her over and pass her down. (I was told by a friend you can go around that boulder-Just like you can go around the 12ft wall on Flat Iron) After this point the trail increases significantly in vertical climb up to the peak. Up is never the issue-as you know down is harder. We got about 3/4 of the way on this part of the trail to the top of the peak before we tapped out! We probably could have climbed it, but the decent would have been dangerous and irresponsible for both me and my dog to attempt together. This dog has hiked Flat Iron in the Sups, Humphreys and hikes Black Mountain in Cave Creek 3-6 times a week-all labeled as difficult hikes. Take your dog if you don't mind NOT climbing to the peak. The entire hike round trip took 2 hours for very seasoned hikers with stops. I would recommend bringing gloves.
We will return this weekend without my dog.

***Road driving caution. I drive a Jeep Trailhawk -I drove this 18 mile forest road fast and rough. It was a lot of fun but it loosened 2 heat shields and broke 3 motor mounts--I can't entirely blame the road for the motor mounts, they may have been close to needing to be replaced. But drive fast and fun knowing the risks...

Great views from the Roost!! DO NOT follow the directions on the app to the trailhead. The directions lead you to an ATV trail. Stay on Sycamore Pass Road when you arrive to a sign that reads end of maintained road. Sycamore Pass road is maintained. The trailhead is not clearly marked which is not the apps fault. Once on the trail the beginning of the hike is up a rocky road. The end of the hike is not marked correctly. Make sure to stay to the left and go around the rocks to see and enter the roost. Again great views just not well marked.

Only thing we would do differently is go in via Chuckwagon trail instead of the road. Much of the road is dusty and traveled by jeeps and 4 wheelers. The bridge is definitely worth hiking to even though the last quarter of a mile is fairly steep and requires a little scrambling.

Very nice trail. The trailhead opens at 8am and I’d suggest getting there early or you’ll need to wait for people to leave. Be prepared for a bit of accidental splashing and possible damp feet. It was worth a couple of damp toes.

It was beautiful, a pretty easy walk/hike. Don't bring your dog unless you know they can handle it. There were a lot of people carrying small dogs.

Relatively short and for the most part easy. There's one section getting near the top where you have to scramble up the rocks. There's also a side trail where you can view the arch from underneath which as worth the extra little walk. The trail was quite crowded so if I went again I would go during the week and even earlier in the morning

Awesome

This was much more my speed as a beginner vs the longer hike to the upper falls via Flume trail and in my opinion just as pretty. The only negative comment I have is the amount of people trying to drive Hondas or Prius. It's about a 30-45min drive down a rough dirt road. They didn't let the Jeeps like us and 4x4s pass and we saw a few get stuck. Common courtesy let people with more suitable
off-road vehicles pass.

Such a fun beautiful hike. If you bring a dog please pack the poop out. So many people leave the poop bags at the entrance. Don’t be a Ricard. Leave the places you visit how you found them.

awesome work out beautiful peak better if you have a 4x4 to get to it. rough way to get to trail head. worth it.

outstanding! think this trail should be listed as difficult. it's not far but. it is steep in spots. some people may have to use their hands. but we'll worth it.. enjoy!

Went this last weekend with my husband and friend- was absolutely stunning! Easy hike and well worth it! So many swimming holes! We were in a Kia and the ride down was a little nerve racking but slow and steady and you’ll be ok!
