Directions from Flagstaff: Drive 27 miles south on US 89A to Sedona and turn west (right) on Jordan road. Follow it about a mile to the trailhead. Or continue through Sedona to Dry Creek Road, turn north about a mile to Vultee Arch Road (FR 152) and north about 2.5 miles to the Soldier's Pass trailhead. 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.

Great hike. We did this combined with teacup, lizard head vultee arch and devil's bridge. Doing the full loop is a good idea if you have the legs, but the vultee arch is a bit boring. The solider pass is nice, but I think brins mesa was nicer (so if you do a big loop like we did, consider skipping soldier pass and NOT brins mesa)

Your chance to view the backside of some formations that are only visible from the front. Super beautiful wide range views. It’s long, but really nice.

Loved this trail! Magnificent views. We just hiked north up to the mesa, and to the north side of the mesa, then returned the same way. Didn't do the loop/triangle. I think this is one of my new favorites in Sedona. A bit steep the second half, but did fine... even for an overweight guy in his mid 50's! Guessing a little over 3 miles round trip?
