A nice relatively flat, peaceful and quiet trail shared with mountain bikers initially (on the southeast side). After passing the Seven Canyons Golf Course the trail enters more thickly forested area with impressive mountains and buttes on either side. The trek requires several crossings of the streambed which is often dry. Spooked two Arizona Coues Deer, also known as "Grey Ghosts", at the very end of the canyon. These are rare, elusive whitetail deer. There are many opportunities to bushwack up to the cliffs. A beautiful canyon!

The trail is fairly flat, so it was do-able for my elderly dog. The scenery isn't the greatest Sedona has to offer, but as a result, the trail isn't as crowded as so many of the other trails in the area.

Trail is well marked but pretty anticlimactic. The trail does a decent job at building but dies off at the end. Pretty dense up and back. Not much of a scenery since your wedged in between two mountains but to be fair there are some good rocky views. Also there are one or two pull over spots to climb. But all in all, this trail is best served to pitch a tent and head to the neighboring hikes for the excitement

Well- marked and fairly well maintained trail up a canyon. Can get crowded at times. Trail just peters out upper part of canyon. Pleasant trail but doesn't have expansive views. A lot of heli-tours remind you how close civilization is.

This hike was a bit of a disappointment. Well worn trail, passes by a golf course early on then settles into a stroll up a canyon with some nice rock scenery. Shared the trail with several heli tours, big bummer. 2 stars for rock scenery and ease of hike.
