$5 Red Rocks parking pass required (not good at Red Rocks State Park). Fun short climb to the top of the mesa where you can walk around to take in views in all directions. When you get to the top, take note of where to find the path back down, before taking a look around!

Awesome short climb up the mountain! Great views on the way up. But nothing compared to the view once you get on top! Go straight on the top across to the end of the trail and a little to your right is a cliff with one of the best views I’ve ever seen! What a surprise!

It was a great trail not hard at all it is a moderate trail like it says there’s a couple parts that you need to climb a little but not bad once you make it to the top you are rewarded with great views there is a daily pass of $5 dollars you have to pay for parking it takes cash or card so ya good.

Beautiful, grand view. Reminded me of Grand Canyon but with Sedona canyons. Short and good payoff (my fav hikes). Would say this took about 30-40 mins hike up? A bit steep incline, so be careful about the heat. I was getting tired even without the heat (we went at 6pm when it was cooler). We were told this was easy but I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily “easy,” as I thought Faye canyon and Birthing cave were easier. Loved this hike tho

Great for a Sedona sunrise. Get to trailhead by 5:00 at the latest (in April/May). Arrived 4:30, first in parking lot. Sun will crest over ridge well after official Sedona sunrise time. Fairly easy trail.

Love this trail! I went early in the morning (6am) and no one else was on it. There were only about three cars in the parking lot total when I arrived and five when I was leaving around 7am. There is an incline throughout almost the whole hike since it's climbing a mountain, but it's well worth it.

Great trail! Incredible views all the way up. Short and sweet. Follow the trail once you get to the top across the Mesa and there are incredible views toward Sedona. We also went on a side trail at the top and found more incredible vistas. We hiked it with our three kids (6, 5 and 4) and our dog. Parking lot was full during peak time (weekend/mid-morning), but we had almost no traffic on the trail—everyone seemed to be doing Bear Mesa, which shares a parking lot.

We went on this trail with 2 kids, ages 8 and nearly 5, and our 4 month old puppy. We only got about .5 mile in before we came across downward sloping rocks that we needed to climb across. We decided that with the youngest child and puppy, it wasn’t worth it. The views up to that point were beautiful and we heard from many people coming down from the trail that it was beautiful the top!

Nice little challenge with great reward at the top! Make sure to go all the way across the top to see incredible vistas! Skip devil’s bridge... climb Doe Mountain instead!

The trail was sometimes hard to follow but just follow the white marks along the rocks. The views are breathtaking!

Amazing sunrise hike with dramatic views of Sedona, as well as some hot air balloons rising up as a bonus! We sprinted to the top in 15 minutes to catch the sunrise, but it would probably take most people 20-40 minutes depending on your fitness level. Keep in mind if you’re catching the sunrise, a large mountain in your way means you don’t need to be there exactly at “sunrise” time to catch it. We had more time than we thought. Enjoy!

Steep trail, but the views are nice. You can walk around the entire top portion and see a different view in every direction. There are some sections where a little climbing is necessary, but nothing too drastic. Also, I recommend doing this one at sunrise or sunset, if you want good photos. We were there by 11 a.m., but with the sun, it wasn’t the best time for photos as everything was blown out with the brightness. Otherwise, it’s a fun and semi-challenging trail.

One of the best in Sedona! There are a few stretches that could be daunting for a casual hiker, but nothing that should dissuade you. Take your time, watch your step, and have fun!! Incredible vistas!

Hiked up to see the sunset and stayed a bit after to watch the sky turn all shades of blue and purple. Bring headlamps for the walk down if you're doing the same. Absolutely beautiful 30 minute walk up.
