Sedona, Arizona Map

on Boynton Canyon Trail

1 hour ago

Started this hike at 7am and got back to the car at 1120. This includes going off to the Vortex Vista and then Continuing to the top. It’s not a difficult hike, just lengthy and it feels like youll never get to the end. But when you do it opens up to a beautiful valley. The only part I hated about this hike is the first part is right next to the resort and other homes. So there’s noise and the homes just ruin some of the scenery.

on Devils Bridge Trail

1 hour ago

Started this hike from the small Mescal TH parking lot. It’s a 30 min easy hike to the Devils Bridge TH and then another 20-30 mins to the top. I started at 7am and got back to my car at 9am. That includes time at the top taking pictures and soaking it all in. I also jogged back to my car most of the way. It’s not a hard hike at all but there are parts closer to the top where it’s steep. But if you’re nervous just go slow and pay attention to where your feet are.

Breathtaking views! This was the perfect escape from the AZ heat in the valley. Plenty of shade on this trail with an abundance of water for play. Our pup loved it! Get there early because the parking lot does fill up fast. Easy, fun and beautiful hike...for all ages.

best views hands down. brutal home tho

Easy trail with beautiful views. We went around 7am on a Tuesday and found parking. Once you reach out he end, you can choose to continue on one of two other trails or turn back. Ample shade with cool breezes.

One of my favorites! Short and sweet if you don’t have much time but want a good workout with amazing views fast. You must climb up a portion of the trail. It’s easier than it looks. Going down is a bit harder. Just go back down on your rear end and it’s much easier. Wear shoes with excellent traction and be prepared to get your hands dirty climbing up! It can get crowded so go early.

There are a few options. If you’re not a climber, or are afraid of heights, you can stay on the first level and hike around the base. It’s very pretty and a nice hike in and of itself.

Fanstasic hike! Moderate for sure, steady incline and there are some challenging rock shimmy/climbs. Beautiful and varying scenery everywhere you look. Park at the trail head and head in. When you get to the Y, for Hangover Trail or Cowpies, take Hangover. It will connect with cowpies and there are some rock climbs that are easier to go up than down. Lots of switchbacks, wear good grip shoes, bring lots of water because it is a 4-5 hour hike if you do the full loop. I would do it again if I come back, it is that good! Have fun!

Easy trail. Would love to do again with water flowing! Anticlimactic ending without the waterfall

Great hike. Great view.

Great first hike! Gorgeous!!!

Worth the work! Be sure to spend time up at the top!!!

Misleading mileage. Once you reach the summit, there is still another 30 minutes to hike out to the Sedona viewpoint. I did not have time to do this, as that would add an hour and about 2 more miles to hike. I hiked to summit and clocked 11.5 miles. I imagine with the vista it’s nearly a 15 mile hike! There is no vista at summit, as it’s hidden in trees, which is always a disappoint after such a grueling hike!

Very, very narrow, rocky trail with drop offs. Trail desperately needs widening. It definitely will not be safe following another monsoon season.

Great views! Not strenuous, but a nice length.. Opens at 8:00am and there is a line to get in, so arrive early. Morning hikiers should dress in layers, can be chilly, but warms up fast. Bring water shoes for continue past the trail end. Worth it!

Great view!

It was wonderful. So beautiful and the mountain air is exquisite. Did the whole thing with our husky and bulldog mix. They loved it and the trail isn't as rough on their paws as the other trails in Sedona which are red rock mostly.

This little hike was so fun!! The trail leads to the cave system or follow all the way down to Oak Creek. The caves were way better than I anticipated based on other people’s reviews. It’s a series of caves/tunnels in the side of the cliff (watch the kiddos!). It’s easy getting into the first cave (right after the ‘no vandalism’ sign) and then gets progressively more challenging getting into the next two

Awesome hike, amazing views. Definitely worth it.

This trail is awesome and for the most part, very easy. There is a very narrow ledge at the top to access the cave but the view is spectacular from the cave. We did see some other people along the trail but we had a half hour to ourselves when we got to the top.

I wouldn’t recommend it for people not in good shape and comfortable climbing. And please leave you 1 year old and your dog at home. Not appropriate for canines and babies.

Easy hike to do with the family. Had alot of fun crossing the creek even though is was still a bit too chilly to go swimming. Got our legs wet but dried fairly quickly while walking. Definitely had more fun exploring off main trails. You will see plenty of smaller trails, especially leading to the creek. Beautiful views of the red rocks from just about everywhere in the park.

At end of trail
Climb a little
Worth the effort

Great first real off road adventure super fun trail and spectacular views, devils staircase super fun but not easy.

Amazing trail! Backpacked in and camped next to the creek. But be alert as we spotted a mountain lion on a low cliff directly above the trail about 3 miles in. Trekking poles were very helpful for this hike and all of the creek crossings.

Mountain bikes it from the top down. Fun trail but I would rate it as expert.

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.

Breathtaking. Fun for the entire family.

Incredibly beautiful views! Tons of people were hiking this trail, some folks were on bikes, some on horseback. As you get closer to the actual bridge, you will be hiking with a lot of other people. There was a huge line and a thirty minute wait just to walk over the bridge. Also dog owners beware. I saw a lot of dogs suffering from heat exhaustion. I would not bring my dogs on this trail. And if you must, bring lotssss of water for them to drink, and to wet them down.

Beautiful trail. Took this trail as a part of a loop including Long Canyon and Dead Man’s Pass. With this loop-expect along of mountain bikers and equestrian encounters.

Nice easy hike. Took this trail as a part of a loop including Long Canyon and Mescal.

We did this trail to Dead Man’s pass then finished the loop on Mescal. Mescal was our favorite part— lovely views along a great ridge!
