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.

Great little hike with a baby on your chest. About half way through there is a large flat-top boulder to rest on. Great photo opportunity! Would hike again, maybe next time with two kiddos!

Beautiful!!!

Nice trail. Easy unless you go a little further past the maintained trail which I would highly recommend. A little climb up some rocks to great scenery from an elevated view of the canyon.

We did this hike yesterday, in the rain. It was easy and well marked. There was a bit more water than normal from the rain, but found it to be enchanting. Coming from phoenix, getting to hike in a lush forest in the rain is a rarity. Once the trail ends, take the remaining climb up the face to reveal a beautiful view of the canyon framing one of Sedona's mesas. Follow the cairn for the side-hike to the Fay Canyon Arch.
