If you are not an experienced hiker or have health issues, this is not the trail for you. You also should prob do it first thing in the morning. You have to hike up some pretty steep hills covered in rocks. Make sure to bring lots of water, my 32 oz water bottle master me till 10 mins from the end. Also prob a good idea to bring sunscreen. Most of it is in the hot sun. The views are amazing though.

Great hike but if you can, start early so you can park at the trailhead. Otherwise expect to add another mile to the hike.

Rocky! Beautiful views around the airport. Easier on the second half on way back. Shady spots to rest. But definitely bring lots of water!!

It took about 2 hours and 20 ministers with our dog. Very nice trail, not really hard, but did take some time to finish. And the only bad thing is hard to find a parking spot.

Great views with a full 360 of the Sedona area as you circle. Not much elevation gain. Our first day hike and very glad it was as we got views of the entire area.

Busy. Views at top were nice, but this is a very crowded trail with very limited parking.

It’s a 3-mile loop with views of the red rocks and the city of Sedona. Do NOT come here to trail run! The path is not smooth - lots of rocks and it’s uneven. However, if you’re just looking for a casual hike, I’d recommend! There are not many parking spots, so have a backup hike picked out just in case.

Easy to moderate trail, rocky, a few steep cliffs. We started in the upper parking lot and had to take the connector trail to the Airport Loop Trail. My Apple Watch clocked me at 3.92 miles but I stopped at lower parking lot and got picked up. We started the hike later in the morning and finished around noon. By that time it was 95 degrees and there is very little shade. You can’t beat the views though!

For someone who is experienced it is a great hike. I do not recommend it for someone who is older, unless they are experienced hikers. For me and my son, it was a great hike. The views are amazing!!!!

The trail is kind of tough and most of the hike you have a steep drop off to one side of you. It’s a moderate hike. The views are lovely though
