Great trail for off-roading. High clearance not required, but helpful. The views are beautiful and worth the trip. Use caution to stay on the "Easy" trail, if that is your personal limit. A wrong turn and you're on the "Hard" 4x4 trail to Devil's Staircase. Ask me how I know!

Took all the kids and had little whining. Fantastic views of Twin Sisters and the Madonna and Child. Chicken Point was a bit crowded with Ponk Jeeps but still worth the views of Village of Oak Creek and Submarine Rock. We couldn’t find the loop part of the hike so we just went back the way we came.

If only Tesla made a jeep version this trail would be 5 stars. We thought we got out early enough (7:30) to avoid the heavy tour jeep traffic, but heard and encountered several on our hike up and back. Still a great scenic hike that young kids could do with little difficulty. I wouldn't consider this as easy as Fay Canyon (which is only a slight incline), but I don't recall having to stop to rest. Just stopped to take in the views.

Awsome, easy hike. Gorgeous views at chicken point (end of broken arrow). Recommend doing it. Do it early as it gets busy and there isn't too many parking spots

Went with two people who have never hiked before. They loved it! Easy hike with stellar views. Pay attention to the trail markers as this intersects with a few different paths.

This was our first hike in Sedona. Recommend getting an early start for two reasons. First, the parking lot is really small...might fit about 20 cars. We got there at 0800 and there were about 8 cars in the lot. Second, the trail was much quieter at 8 than it was at 1030 when we finished. Also, at 1030, there were cars waiting to park.

The trails were listed as easy. They weren't bad. If it was rainy or frosty, there may have been issues as some of the rocks may get slick. The elevation changes were pretty apparent, but the views were worth every step.

There were plenty of people with dogs...all leashed. Some mountain bikers, but not too many.

Trail is listed as a loop. When we got to the end, we had a little trouble finding the loop...so we back tracked the hike in. That being said, I felt the trails were really well marked. All total, probably 3 miles and some change, but a good walk.

One of our favorite trails here. Fun, winding, climbing trail. Lots of people but not anymore crowded than Soldiers. The climb to Chicken Point was a nice short workout.

I love this trail. It's small but yet challenging in some area's. Finally got to go down devil's stair case in the rain. Made my girls scream sliding down. The best!!

Very well marked trail. It’s a busy area with many hikers and bikers. Everyone was considerate in the narrow areas. If it has rained or there is frost on the trail be careful walking on the slate. We had our dogs and they had some issues on the slippery parts. All-in-all, this trail is highly recommended.

Hiked a portion of this trail today to fill some available time this afternoon. Wish we would have had time to explore more of it and the connected trails. Great views and a manageable challenge.

The view was amazing! Climbed up between the Rabbits ears, and also walked the White Line trail. Pink Jeep tours are going through the area so there are a lot of people wandering in the area. Nice little hike. Not too strenuous, unless you try scrambling up into the slot canyons, which are also phenomenal!

Great off road trail. Moderate traffic but doable. This was our first trip out with our FJ and it was amazing. Followed Pink Jeep which was helpful through the rocky areas.

Nice easy up and down slope trail with great red rock views. Can be done with children, no steep drop offs.

Awesome trail for off road driving however I would not rate it as an easy trail for driving but maybe moderate. You will find out pretty quickly if your vehicle can or can’t make it.

This is a great trail, I did it on foot and on one of the Pink Jeep Tours as well. It’s appropriate for all ages and some gorgeous rocks to be seen. It can get a bit dusty but there are some gorgeous photography shots awaiting you.

Fantastic, easy trail, very well marked (if you pay attention to the signs and cairns), very little elevation change, and almost level ground. If you only have one day in Sedona or can make it on only one hike, this is a very good choice - go all the way to Chicken Point. You can make it a loop if you take the Twin Buttes/High On The Hog trails (a little more advanced). Or you can circumnavigate the butte (just check the map first). Engine whine from the occasional jeep mars the experience a bit. Leashed dogs allowed. To get to the parking lot you have to drive 'off-road' for a couple hundred feet - a bit rougher terrain than I like in a sedan but nothing an Altima can't handle, just go really slow on the iffy bits. Plenty of rental sedans in the lot.

The hike consisted of twin buttes,high on the hog,broken arrow and the side trail to submarine rock. This a popular area and you will cross areas where vehicles are allowed but it has some nice variation in geography ,well used by bikers. The rock formations are interesting. If you take the side trail to submarine you can come back a short distance on the road back to broken arrow. Stick to broken arrow or the roads if you just want a easy walk.

Very fun trail, probably not for full size pickups, very tight in places. We made it any way. Great views, returned to parking area, hiked broken arrow, either way, well worth it.

Excellent views... there is Jeep traffic but for the most part hikers can avoid it. Chicken point views are phenomenal

Was fun to drive and hike. Very packed with Offroad jeep tours that was the only downfall. There is a hard section they stay away from so thy made it better. Some parts are very tricky but all the views make it worth it. Definitely recommend checking this place out for hiking and off-roading. Not for stock jeeps though.
