Beautiful little hike. Came across a few people but otherwise had the trail mostly to ourselves.

Incredible the whole way, amazing views, beautiful day. Coming back we did get confused and we where lost for some time until a biker should us how to get back on track. I am no expert and could do it, but took me many hours to do the complete loop. Would definitely recommend it!

Spectacular trail from start to finish. Moderate climb. We took it to the top of the elevation gain with great views of Cathedral Rock, about 2 miles. People suffering from severe vertigo might not like this trail. Anyone with just a healthy respect for heights should be fine.

Easy hike around the airport perimeter. Your up on the Mesa, every turn offers a great view of the surroundings. I'd reccomend it just for picture opportunities.

Great views and it's not too bad. There is one particularly challenging (some I was hiking with found it scary) spot you'll encounter, but it's really the only part that is _that_ challenging. That part probably gave it the 'hard' rating.

Lost the trail on slim shady. There is a spur that I got turned around - but wasn't that hard to reorient myself.

Very pretty loop with nice views of Cathedral Rock. It was quite a bit longer than 2 miles, though, according to my pedometer. Probably closer to 3. We started on the creek side and went clockwise, which turned out to be more difficult, but it was still really lovely. Almost everyone else was coming the opposite way and had more downhill.

Nice fairly easy hike with some uphill, this hike is mostly shaded but not completely so bring a hat and sunscreen. If you are wanting to go to the Arches keep an eye out for a trial that will ver off to the right, it is not marked and VERY EASY TO MISS!

Remember to respect the environment and leave no trace.

This is an incredibly special trail, though quite difficult in many areas especially for people like me afraid of heights! Particularly when the wind is whipping threatening to tear you off the rock face! Not for the faint of heart. Scenery is spectacular the entire trek. We went counterclockwise and at the bottom the sign reads: difficult, technical skills needed! One of the harder hikes, not moderate. Loved the excitement and beauty. Don’t miss this trail.

Must do if you are in the area! Nice loop trail with great views.

11/10/2018 Trail was nice, however, if you follow the All Trail map the path turns on a foot path that is not maintained. This was not mentioned in the reviews . Very doable easy to moderate trail and we would do it again

Very nice and easy trail, however, it is a very heavy trafficked trail. Views on one side are great, other side not so much. Parking can be difficult at the trail head because of the amount of people.

Nice easy trail for people and pups. Went while visiting some friends in the area as an easy afternoon hike and fit the bill perfectly.

Beautiful not crowded!

Great hike but parking options are limited. Parking lot was full before 9am on Sunday.

Easy trail to a lookout. In November we went at 6 am and the colors were really good as the sun hit the red rocks at about 7 am glad we waited for the sun to rise over the mountains and hit the red rocks to the west! Beautiful!!!

This is a phenomenal trail for one that is rated easy: incredible views within the first mile and very little elevation gain. If you have just one hour in Sedona this is the trail for you. Less than 3 minutes from Rte 179. We had come out of the Grand Canyon the day before and our legs were shot - this was the perfect easy trail to still get a taste of Sedona.

The only downside: the perfect solitude and quiet was obliterated first by a pink Jeep and then by a band of ATVs . Would have been a 5 star without that

Love this hike as well. Chicken point is amazing

This is NOT an easy trail for mountain biking. There are a few sections that are very difficult to ride (especially when going up to Chicken Point) but it’s not that hard to walk your bike through these sections, and it’s worth it!

When you get up to Chicken Point, hang out awhile and enjoy the amazing views. You might be lucky enough to se someone riding “The White Line”. You can continue riding around back to “the Hogs” or go back down and make your first left and rip down Llama. It’s a fun trail that you can ride fast.

Was a long loop trail but so wonderful. Go counterclockwise at the loop.

Beautiful vista at the end but this trail is much more of a moderate than an easy. There are stretches where you go up rocks on the path that could be hazardous if your footing is not good. A lot of bikes on the narrow parts of the trail make for tough going in some parts. Bring water! Budget more time than you think. Also be sure to wear a hat, as there is little shade.

Brisk morning hike on this easy trail. Puppy dog enjoyed it too.

Lots of fun. Beautiful views. Easy on the knees. Easy parking lot access.

If you can only do one hike, do this one. We took a left at the cow pie/hangover sign post, going counter clockwise around the trail. Bikes have to take the cow pie trail (right at the sign post) to get to hangover trail. I was glad to be heading towards bikers rather than having them come up behind us. The views are amazing. This is a challenging hike...not hard, but definitely on the more difficult side of moderate. It took us about 3.5 hours to do the 8+ miles. We weren’t hustling, but kept a decent pace.

This is a really easy hike with great views. Perfect for a sunrise hike.

Amazing views but long and tiring hike when the sun is beating down. You get no relief from the sun for over half of the hike. Then when you think you are done, you keep climbing and hoping to get to the trail head. If you are lucky enough to get a parking spot at the actual trailhead, that is great. But if you have to park at the airport lot, the last .6 is not fun! But it was an awesome hike and I would do it again.

My wife and I took our 4 year old son on this hike. While it's not the most scenic trail, we were stoked that our little one finished the loop like a boss. Nice easy hike, especially if you have little kids with you.

I actually got lost but the hike was great!

A neat trail that is fairly scenic, but not overly so. You get a bit of canyon views and canyon river and not overly crowded like some trails / parking in Sedona.

Nice hike to a watering hole...water is typically too cold for me, but other folks jumped in just fine. Keep your bikes home unless your only going halfway, saw a kid struggle as his father kept going. You don't need to be in great shape, but helps.

We used Baldwin as our starting point to Cathedral Rock (via Templeton) and completed the Baldwin Loop on our return. It's a pretty hike and not strenuous.

We arrived around 10 am on a Sunday in early November and didn't have any trouble with parking. I definitely recommend this as a way to avoid the crowds parking at Cathedral Rock, but I probably wouldn't do Baldwin again on its own because it doesn't offer much that you won't see on other hikes in the area.
