This is a phenomenal trail for one that is rated easy: incredible views within the first mile and very little elevation gain. If you have just one hour in Sedona this is the trail for you. Less than 3 minutes from Rte 179. We had come out of the Grand Canyon the day before and our legs were shot - this was the perfect easy trail to still get a taste of Sedona.

The only downside: the perfect solitude and quiet was obliterated first by a pink Jeep and then by a band of ATVs . Would have been a 5 star without that

Amazing red rock views! As Carrie C mentioned, DO NOT do the loop as shown. It has you returning on the Jeep road, your shoes and lungs will be full of red powder from the Jeeps. If you're looking for a loop, return via High on the Hog and Twin Buttes. Really recommend the short side trail to Submarine Rock. Easy to summit and great trail. Also mushroom rock, just before you get to chicken point. Broken Arrow is often crowded with people and Jeeps but well worth it.

Well marked trail. Be aware of mountain bikers who are generally very considerate. Lots of options to branch off to Submarine rock, Twin Buttes, and others.

This was one beautiful hike. Started at sunrise, so most of the beginning of the trail was shaded and cool. The length was perfect and the trail was well-marked. Don’t miss the sinkhole, it was quite deep. I would recommend not doing the loop, but rather do an out and back. The loop includes the 4x4 road.

A nice hike and a great starting place for several other great hikes. Our only complaint is that the jeep tours drive through over the rocks leaving a trail of fumes behind.

Nice hike, great views. Loop is not clearing marked

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.

Easy hike. We did only part walking with an older dog great views even on a short walk.

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.
