Best part was going off trail and tackling the summit. Great views at the top.

No restrooms at trail head. Beautiful views everywhere! Some elevation but overall an easier hike than moderate in my opinion.

This was our favorite trail in all of Sedona and the view from the summit was spectacular. Oddly enough, there were very few hikers and had the whole view view to ourselves. Its pretty short but steep. We skipped the loop part and just went straight up to the top. Little parking, just like everywhere else in Sedona.

This is a great little hike. Short and easy if you don’t take the summit trail. It’s a good warm up if you continue on to the Chimney rock/ Thunder mountain trail. Parking is also pretty good.

I like all of Sedona trails. This is lovely when you get going and away from any noise. Can be hard if you do both loops and the summit but we’re not serious hard core hikers just love spending time out there.

Trail was a nice afternoon hike, but I wouldn’t say it was Moderate. I would categorize as Easy. You can make the hike longer and more intense by climbing the Summit. The trail for the summit it on the back side.

My wife and I took our 4 year old son on this hike. While it's not the most scenic trail, we were stoked that our little one finished the loop like a boss. Nice easy hike, especially if you have little kids with you.

Definitely recommend hiking the summit - amazing 360 degree views and not that difficult to get up. Otherwise a nice quick trail

Amazing Trail! They have many trails you can do off of the loop. We went up to the summit and the upped trail. Highly recommend!

Very beautiful hike. If you want to see an amazing view of Sedona take the summit trail to the top. A bit difficult but well worth it.

Visiting from Texas and staying at a hotel not far from the Trailhead. It was within walking distance and I was looking for an easy hike with a reward. The Lower Chimney fit this especially with a short climb to the summit. Spectacular payoff and 360 views of Sedona. Would recommend for families with preteens.
