It's a mile and half hike to the Brins Mesa Trail intersection. The last 1/4 mile of Jordan Road and all 3 miles of FR 152 can be a bit rough.

Outstanding views throughout the hike. As you gain in elevation, the views become even more breathtaking. If you find yourself tiring and wondering if the view from atop Brins Mess is worth the effort, push on because it certainly is.

Nice trail well marked and spectacular views from the Mesa. Would do this trail again. Make sure you hike to the tan whitish/tan rock formation on the top of the Mesa for even better views.

We hiked the Jordan trail about a mile and a half. It was well was well marked and easy to find. It seemed like we were always in sight of a carin marker. The views were stunning, but the heat of the day was enough to cut the hike shorter than I had hoped for.

Not a real challenging hike, but it's Sedona so it's a beautiful hike and well worth the drive from Phoenix.

Rugged trail at times, but worth the views.

7.6 miles - and worth it! I will say it was 80* outside today in Sedona - which made the hike quite warm. I would do it all over again in October and probably love it! Lots of little sites to see along the way. Seven Sacred Ponds, Devil's Kitchen, etc.

Easy day trip if you're coming from the Phoenix area. The hike will take about 2.5 hours.

We had a super fun time...until we got lost! Finally found out way back onto Cibola Trail and made it back to the car. I told my husband that the beginning of the climb was the stairway to Heaven. Views from the Mesa are super. Seven pools was 2 1/2 pools and some empty holes. Sink hole was very cool. Great morning hike that turned into an all day adventure for us. Great times!

Great trail! You get to see the 7 pools and the sinkhole. There were great views on both sides on the trail.

Great loop with beautiful views throughout. Interesting and varied terrain -- some scrambling, but not difficult. Moderate is a good overall description -- long hike, but not too challenging. Loved it!
