Absolutely breathtaking. A great spontaneous mini hike on 89. We saw the sign and got out to stretch our legs and join in on the experience of a life time!! It added a great plus to our adventurous road trip from Utah to Arizona!

View is amazing but the walk is miserable during the sweltering temperatures in summer! Be warned that there is practically no shade, even when you get to the end. I would recommend going early in the day during the summer

Worth the hike..beautiful view, but very hot. It was around noon when i got there..

We were definitely over confident on this one....but will be going back for sure. The trail is not clearly marked at all. We had several references and researched our route. But still struggled to find our way. Next time we will camp at the trailhead and leave early to avoid the heat. We will take plenty of extra water and end up back before dark with plenty of time to enjoy the cathedral. It's absolutely gorgeous !
Be sure to stay to the left as the canyon splits, and the switchbacks donate not easy to see from the top.....but they are there. It was easy to get confused on the way back. But we did find the big red arrow painted on the rock by the sand hill, finally. It was brutal, but we made it back just as the sun disappeared. Some were not as lucky.
The search and rescue were heading down the mountain as we were climbing up. Be safe out there.
I would definitely recommend a GPS.

Easy hike out and back. Went early 7am to avoid crowds and sun. Morning light was wonderful

Child friendly (Ages: 9, 7, 5, 1), decent hike. Beautiful view that we didn't get to enjoy as long as we wanted. Wind was HORRID! We were sand blasted and on the way back to the lot, nearly knocked over. So check the weather! And not just for heat/rain! :)

An easy hike, but very high temp during the day with no shade and very heavily trafficed. The view in to the canyon though is completely worth it.
