A hidden gem in Sedona. The caves are halfway down the cliffside and they seem endless. The sound of the river and birds echoed through the caves. You can head down the rest of the cliff and enjoy a nice cool down by the creek. Just be ready for bugs. Follow me on Instagram @nathan_vanengen I will be posting Gopro footage of the caves and you can also find more amazing places to visit in the southwest!

Beautiful hike down a rocky path. We blew past the caves the first time so had to come back and find them. They were super cool. You have to be ok with heights in the caves because it’s a little scary, but it’s worth it!

Short but sweet hike. It is a short hike the caves are a little sketchy (I am scared of heights) but well worth the views. Great if you get into town late or want something early before other longer hikes. We went and we were the only ones there so we got to have it all to ourselves.

Easy trail that leads to some fun caves. Would not recommend for small children, pets, or anyone who is afraid of heights. It’s not the safest.

Good hike, parking is right of the street. Beginning is easy and slowly gets sketchy. Caves are half way down the trail, you could get in and walk inside of them. After you could go to the creek, just stay to the right after the caves.

My friend and I and her 80lb dog hiked this trail. We hiked it at sunset, did the caves about 30 minutes before. Then we went to the top of the mountain and ate a steak dinner (carry out during covid 19 can have its perks) while watching the sunset. We hung out about an hour after sunset to see the sun paint the clouds some of the most jaw dropping colors. I am terrified of heights and had some very difficult points during this hike. Make sure you keep an eye out for the “illegal to deface rocks sign” that others mentioned, the caves are easily missed right around the corner between the edge of the cliff and a tree. You can also go down to the river where there’s some itty bitty waterfalls.

Description of hike would rate a 2, maybe 3. Caves were on a cliff face, we had kids between 4-8. They had a bit of a harder time on the cliff face due to just the rocky terrain. Overall, the scenery and views are beautiful though, would rate a 5.

Super cute little caves. Got here when no one else was so it was fun exploring without the hustle of the crowds. Easy hike, just have to climb up and down rocks to get there

Have to veer left at the oversight to get down to the caves. Had to have someone show us but the caves were worth it. Nice short hike, overall rocky.

Did this short hike day after rain and it’s muddy at parts. There are atleast 2 places where you have to be really careful moving along the rocks edge to get around to the other side. Definitely not for the faint of heart or those scared of heights. But very cool caves!! Watch for the “it’s illegal to deface rocks” sign for the cave opening.
