Just loved it. So beautiful. When you get to the end if you’re feeling adventurous you can just continue on through the canyon, without getting wet, the water must have been low when I went. It just gets better and better as you continue, with each turn in the canyon. :-)

This was such a beautiful hike. I loved every second. Come early! There’s a line of cars usually on the weekends.
Great for people of all hiking levels (even kiddos!). I wouldn’t say everyone can necessarily make it to the end but you really don’t have to go the whole way to experience the magic ✨.

Enjoyed the trail. Scenery is beautiful as you wind your way back into the canyon. A few ups and downs in elevation, but nothing major. I recommend it!

This trail is beautiful, mildly challenging, and it is definitely worth the 6.8-7 mile hike! You can enjoy a little bit of everything on this trail. Make sure you hike to the end where the canyon narrows...it is breathtaking and most people hiking the trail turn around before they make it this far.

Great hike for a quick fix if you’re running tight on time. Great vortex action which is accessible for all levels. Excellent 360 views, good angle on Enchantment.

Going to the trail, stay on Sycamore Trail, do not follow the deviation off Sycamore that Apple Maps shows. Good amount of parking at the trail start.

Hike up the dirt road to the the red mountain on your right. The trail goes down and then up to the cave. Just before you reach the cave there is a very narrow and steep area to cross.

The cave inside is big and has awesome views! This hike was better than I expected. Worth the 45 minute drive from Sedona to do it.

I love this trail! We went on a Sunday during Spring Break, so the trail wasn't empty. We had to park down the road actually, the parking lot was full. But the stream was beautiful and a refreshing place to pause for a snack before continuing on to finish the hike.

This a beautiful hike with multiple creek crossings. In the afternoons it is well shaded so perfect for when the weather gets warmer. No major inclines. You need to be in line waiting for a parking spot when the park opens or wait till the afternoon if you want a spot. $10 cash or check to get in - no debit cards.

Beautiful. Such a nice change from the red rocks (although those trails a beautiful too!) it’s a trail for anyone really. Even if you can’t make the whole trail and back it’s lovely all the way so you can’t lose! [And no mountain bikers ;-)]

I ended up on the Outlaw OHV trail due to my map directions. Yes, I did read the reviews prior to going. There was no sign for sycamore pass road. I ended up on the OHV trail in my SUV, which was not the best idea. I turned around since I still had 5 miles of crazy terrain to go without any directions. Bummed

Such a cool trail. An easy rocky road up to the head, which isn’t marked well. A down and up that looses you near the left ha d turn to the cave. There are a couple of arrows scratched on rocks to point the way. The views where amazing and the cave is super cool. You can climb to the top of the hill as well for some great views.

Started early morning pre 7 am) and had the trail to ourselves for the first hour or so. For the first 1.5 miles there is no tranquility as you pass the resort and homes... blaring pan flute music, generators and loud conversations spoil the hike through this section (both ways)... once past the homes the Canon's energy will fill you up... gorgeous views and peacefulness abounds. Our return hike was characterized by the heavy flow of "traffic". We passed groups of hikers heading up every few minutes. This is a very heavily used trail, even early morning on a weekday.

This was one of the best hikes our family has done in Sedona. We have two boys (4 & 7) and they enjoyed every moment! We were only able to make it half way due to starting late in the day, but it was perfect from the start with all of the lavender in blossom and learning about the old lodge that once stood there with a small little cave and a old chicken coop (we think). The path that lead to amazing views of the red rocks that look like waves was spectacular. We wish we had enough time to complete the entire hike, but we will definitely be back to finish it one day.

Even though this trail can get crowded and a bit backed up at every creek crossing, it is still probably my favorite hike in the area. It is truly a magical place filled with ferns and blossoming wildflowers in the spring and gorgeous red and yellow leaves on the trees in the fall. It’s a great hike to do when it’s too hot for most of the wide open sunny trails in Sedona. Here, you are in a beautiful canyon surrounded by majestic mountains, most of which is shaded by the forest trees. Highly recommend this hike but it can take basically all day, especially if you explore around the bend of the creek after the trail ends. Be prepared to get your shoes wet if you do! It’s worth it!

Awesome hike on Sunday April 22nd. Not too warm yet but getting pretty close. If you want to do this hike, do it soon otherwise best bet is going to be whenever summer ends... Who knows when that will be here in AZ!

Very different terrain. Easy trail with lots of shade. Total time 3.5 hours. Great way to avoid the sun.

Started this hike at 7am and got back to the car at 1120. This includes going off to the Vortex Vista and then Continuing to the top. It’s not a difficult hike, just lengthy and it feels like youll never get to the end. But when you do it opens up to a beautiful valley. The only part I hated about this hike is the first part is right next to the resort and other homes. So there’s noise and the homes just ruin some of the scenery.

Breathtaking views! This was the perfect escape from the AZ heat in the valley. Plenty of shade on this trail with an abundance of water for play. Our pup loved it! Get there early because the parking lot does fill up fast. Easy, fun and beautiful hike...for all ages.

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!

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.

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.

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.

First hike in Sedona. Beautiful, but I'm looking for something that gets me to a higher view :)

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.

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.

Had the end of the trail all to ourselves on a Saturday morning- started around 8. Saw wildlife and wildflowers, the red rocks are breath taking. The first little bit along the resort is a little annoying with truck noise, but the rest was tranquil and peaceful.

This is one of my top 10 trails! Absolutely beautiful! Canyon walks change with every turn. Went beyond the end point for extra scenery. It was amazing.

Great trail.. well marked and beautiful at every turn. Be sure to go on to the very end of the Canyon. There the walls of the Canyon surround you and the creek runs through. Soft trail with some climbing and navigating of creek crossing. Crossed the creek 28 times in all.

Always hard to get a parking spot, and never a disappointed hike!

Very beautiful hike featuring Sedona’s iconic red rock cliffs, gorgeous riparian areas, pine trees, and flowing water. The only bummer is the wait to get in and the crowds... so be early. It’s fabulous from beginning to end! My gps clocked 7.5 miles but we went a little past the end of the maintained trail, which I would recommend doing if you wanna see more beauty of the creek and narrow red rock walls. Super easy hike to do for all ages and dogs. Took about 4 hrs with frequent stops for pictures.
