Good canopy and cool canyon bottom make for an excellent hike. Trail is a loose red powder. Some rocky parts where the trail crosses an old dry / seasonal creek bed. DO WATCH OUT FOR BEARS.

Really nice easy trail. took our time and enjoyed all the beauty the trail has to offer. took our small dog who had a fab time. Definitely do the climb at the end of the trail to get a totally awesome view. I'll try to upload a pic but, trust me , the pic does not do it justice

Make sure you climb up at the end of the trail. Totally worth the view. You can keep going through the back of the bowl and find another trail to another bowl.

Not to many people. Fun little climb at the end for those up for it, totally optional. The view from the climb is worth it! It was not as long as I was thinking it would be, but that's okay, it gave us more time at the view point.

This is my favorite trail so far. Loved the shade! It’s like a tunnel of trees. The color is beautiful. And you absolutely have to go beyond the maintained trail, climb the rocks and see the beautiful view!

Flat until the very end. Then it was pretty fun... rock scramble to the side of a mountain that yields awesome pics of the Sedona landscape. One of the BEST short hikes in Sedona. You can be done in less than 2 hours round trip easily.

Family friendly (6 and 8 year olds)

Easy trail thru the forest with some great views of red Rock. Continue on past the end of trail up to the left for some great views of the cathedral. The little bit of work at the end of trail makes this a much better hike because of the incredible view.
