Loved this trail. It was not exactly challenging but it also was not crowded. The wild flowers along the way are beautiful and the views at the top are magnificent. Would be a great sunset hike.

a little bit boring once you get on top and start down the other side.

Make certain that you take the last leg. Scheurman Vista is a beautiful panoramic view of the valley

We enjoyed the fact that this trail wasn't being used by many others and we found the view from the vista lovely. We think the description needs correcting, though, as we don't see a loop on the map, nor did we find one. We took the trail all the way to Lime Kiln trailhead with a side trip to the vista and it took us about 1.5 hours. Glad we did it but probably wouldn't revisit with so many other options to try.

The fork at the saddle to Sherman's Vista is what makes the hike worthwhile. My wife is 75 and was able to make it to the too.

Trail head is right behind the high school, as in parking lot boarders the trail head parking. Trail has lots of small rocks that weren't great for walking, trail itself was not that pretty though you did have some nice views of the red rocks and Sedona. It was a nice little workout short and a little steep. Nobody was on the trail which is always a plus with me. I'm still giving it 1 star because I've seen a lot of great hikes, I will say my wife gave it a 3 so one of us must have heat stroke as it was very warm.
