Although fairly short, this trail has to be considered one of the best in Arizona. It is extremely fun to drive and the red rock scenery is knock-out beautiful. This is an extremely popular route and traffic can be very heavy at times. Pull-outs are provided. Do not widen the trail by trying to pull over anywhere other than the pull-outs. You may have to back up. This is also a very popular hiking and mountain biking area, so be alert and courteous at all times. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you'll need a Red Rocks Pass Located in Coconino National Forest. For current conditions call Red Rock Ranger District (928) 203-2900. Several large rock ledges require high ground clearance but the obstacles are not overwhelming because little articulation is required. The hardest obstacle is called "The Steps," which is driven downhill. This obstacle is very steep and will be intimidating to an inexperienced driver; however, stock SUVs with high ground clearance should be able get down just fine. You may scrape bottom so skid plates are recommended. This trail is very well marked and easy to follow.

I usually scroll through reviews for tips and pointers and didn’t see anything about the majority of this trial being shared with motorized vehicles..dirt bikes, jeeps, etc. personally, that made the excursion much less enjoyable. I completed midday when it is the hottest but it’s a relatively simple and easy hike overall. Would be much better if hikers didn’t have to share the path with cars/jeeps...

Hiked from the trailhead at Morgan Road to Chicken Point overlook. Also went to the top of Submarine Rock. Fantastic hike and I thought it was easy. Look for the Kairns when the trail takes you on the rocks. Route finding was easy. Out and back trail with plenty if opportunity to lengthen your hike by incorporating other trails

A nice, moderately difficult trail. No parts are too challenging. Every now and again it becomes pretty easy to lose the trail, so you need to look around for the markers (usually a pile of stones in fencing). The end at Chicken Point has a great 360 view and is really peaceful. I started at 7:30 AM and got back at 9:00 AM - taking the side Submarine Rock Trail as well. There are a lot of options for extending your time here by taking other side trails, so this hike can be as long as you want it to be, really. I didn't see any 4x4s, but I'm not sure if it's because I was early enough or because those tours aren't running during COVID-19.

Start early AM bc the 4X4ers show up around 9am, noisy & leaving a oil slick ( black tire trail ) on the surrounding rocks. Thought that polluting our natural treasures was frowned upon ? ( leave no trace !!!! ) Not against ATV’s but they should not be here ! OR, charge them $50 permit per day use , that $$$ going to the NFS to clean the tire marks off the rocks annually. OR, keep them in the flatlands. Other than this, the area is gorgeous. ( eliminate the ATV’s & this is a 5 Star hiking area )

This was a beautiful hike. We managed to make it 5 miles not 3.2. I wish the jeeps weren't allowed up there. We be hiking along and then all the sudden hear the vehicles coming.

Beautiful scenery! Took out Lifted Jeep and had no problems, don’t know if I would take a stock in certain places. Super fun to see new sights and do a little off-roading.

Views from the very beginning! Awesome trail. We come late in the afternoon and did not have that muchbtime tondo the side trails, sonwe plan on coming back to tackle more trails on this one! A must do!

I would rate this as the best trail/ hike in Sedona. You get very different views as the trail snakes through rocks and it takes you very close to large red rocks. Would rate this 10 star if I could! It's also quite easy to do, but can take a while (~3 hours).

This is really an off roader trail. Super muddy and rutted and not very foot friendly. The trail route shown here is NOT well marked so we did not find the right trail heading out to the right. Pretty views at the beginning. Didn’t finish because one in our party got hurt.

A beautiful route!! 360° views of the mountains. A good mixture of the forest views with the rocks. Some incline, but nothing too difficult!

Beautiful hike but too many mountain bikes and tourist jeeps and just a lot of noise. Shame. But with that said, it was ultimately a positive experience.

Excellent trail. Pink jeeps everywhere, but if you can see past the commercial tour companies it is an amazing ride. I did devils scare case both directions, it was excellent!
