Nice hike with great scenery. Rocky. Too many bikes on this trail. Heavy traffic also. Well marked and easy to follow.

Great little hike to the chicken pots which are pretty neat to check out. The trail was well marked and I didnt find it too busy.

A lovely introduction to Sedona - mellow and meandering, with great views and lots of kinds of flora - no fauna this trip. We started a bit before noon on a Saturday in October and the lot was pretty full. Temperature nice and warm. The trail ended at a plateau with lots of views including the Two Nuns & Chicken Point.

Really nice trail easy to moderate. It had beautiful scenery and traffic was very low around 9Am.

Great hike to celebrate the cooler temps of Fall. More shade and/or flowing streams would have made this a 5 Star hike.

Enjoyed Little Horse up to Chicken Point, then decided to take a side hike to Chapel of the Holy Cross (and back to Little Horse).

We found all the trails to be well marked with rock cairn/baskets and wooden signs.
