Directions from Flagstaff: Drive south 17.5 miles south from Flagstaff or north 9.5 miles from Sedona to about halfway between milepost 385 and 384. The trailhead is on the east side of the highway across from a few houses. The best place to park is at the Call O' The Canyon day area about a quarter mile north of the trailhead. This is a fee parking area.

Terrific hike for those who prefer to go off the beaten path. The first half mile or so wind uphill through the woods and pine straw. The climb gets steeper at the end but the views are well worth the effort. Park at the West Fork lot and walk along the road for about .3 miles. The TH is somewhat hard to find. Total hike time about 1.5 hours. Warning: I disagree with AllTrails on the Easy rating. The trail is moderate plus, borderline hard given the steep elevation.

A few things to note. 1) the trail is very rugged near the top so be prepared. There are spots where you have to go through vegetation. 2) Its hard to stay on the trail on the way down - very easy to get lost or off trail so stay alert.

Difficult trail head to find. Had to walk along the highway to find the trailhead. not ideal. Parked at the west fork parking lot, then walked to the trail. Beautiful switchbacks to start the trail. Then skirt along the edge of the mountain and you look directly down oak creek canyon toward Sedona. Finish the trail on the plateau and enjoyed the view. Really liked the hike. Definitely not a little kid hike, or if you are too out of shape.
