Located in Sedona. Not a lot of parking. Great Views of some of the major mountain ranges Easy trail and to the summit is super easy. Not slippery when wet.

Definitely one of the least enduring hikes, but has one of the best views in Sedona. I've been on 95% of all the trails in Sedona and this is still one of my favorites.

Great way to end our time in Sedona! The hike was nice and very scenic. The 360 views were amazing!

GREAT HIKE!! Highly recommend this hike. The 360° views were great. Family friendly and well marked. Suggest hiking to the summit.

Easier short trail that was well marked. Path to summit was was wide and gradual. No need for hands and kids can easily enjoy but careful at the top with young children. Great views of where we were staying for the week and some of the other trails we hiked to the west. (Andante and Chimney Rock) Nobody out at 7am but by the time we were leaving at 8 it was picking up. Would also be a great evening hike to view better colors in uptown Sedona.

Really fun, quick hike with a great payoff! Recommended route for the loop is counterclockwise.

Sunrise was awesome from up there! We rock scrambled to get to sunrise on time but then walked the trail back. This is an easier hike for the area though still more technical than some should do.

the climb to the summit was not bad in the trail was fairly easy. Coming off the top if you turn right there's no marker to continue on Sugarloaf trail so we had to backtrack after we made it over to Cline Road. when we got back to the trail using our GPS I thought the trail was much more like a goat Trail and a little difficult in areas to pass through for someone of my age. I did Easy Breezy yesterday & thought it was much easier.

the view at the summit was beautiful.

Beautiful! The trail is easy and the summit is moderate. Can't beat the beauty from 360 degrees once you get to the top!

The summit has great views of surrounding Red Rocks and Sedona. We saw people hiking up to view the sunset. Easy and quick hike with a good payoff. Would recommend.

Easy hike with beautiful views of the red rocks and vegetation. Trail is marked well and is great for small kids or novice hikers. You can also hike up to sugarloaf butte from the trail which has spectacular views. I enjoyed hiking this one with my toddler (walking) and newborn (in a carrier).

Super easy and beautiful! we went on over to Soldiers Pass from the Sugar loaf trail, which is also worth checking out!

Definitely an easy hike - but loved views and little to no people around so good quiet time alone.

An awesome view and an easy little hike great for the whole family. Also doesn't take too long to do the whole loop it's great if you're limited on time.

Amazing views from the top. Gets pretty moderate when you do the summit up. But so worth it!

Directions given by app will take you to the middle of nowhere. Google says to take coffee pot road in Sedona

A beautiful day and a easy hike.

This trail is great for even children with a moderate incline. Good for dogs as well. A chance to see all of the ranges in the sedona area.

So if you have a hour to kill then go on this trail.

One other thing, don't go on a holiday weekend the traffic in sedona is terrible.
