Pretty moderate hike. Gradual elevation changes. A little climbing to get up into Cathedral Rock. Beautiful views! Not a lot of shade by mid morning.

We keep saying we got messed up on Mescal after this hike. What appeared to be relatively easy / moderate out and back was increasingly more difficult by 11am with the sun heat beaming down. No shade at all. Thank god for the intermittent breeze and my hat or I might have passed out. Incredible views for sure -go early. 9am was too late a start. We also thought it was best to follow “difficult” path vs “extreme” in both directions when it splits. Some sandy parts & a few MTB but mostly just us out there. My mind kept playing tricks on me thinking I was seeing things i was not so we just blamed it on the Mescal. It does feel very spiritual with higher energy hiking the red rocks.

This is a great hike. Very nice combination of features. This a a great trail for beginners. Plan on a bit over an hour. Wonderful excercise.

Overall a good hike, but a lot of elevation changes throughout the hike with some areas being hard to tell where the trail is

This trail was awesome, my girlfriend and I came with our dog and she was not a fan. Probably the time of the year that we went... it was a little too hot for this. But overall it had great views and we loved it! We even got to see the creek on templeton and soak in it which was nice.

As it turns out we’ve been on this trail in the past. Agree it is a easy trail with some good sights with some cover at the start. However, our hike on Wed, June 3rd at 10a was hot and mostly uncovered. There was no stream to enjoy. I believe the water you access is only on the Templeton Trail that you can use to access the Baldwin Circle Trail.

Thunder Mountain trail is very pretty with shade. Andante loop is along the back of houses with power lines and is less rocky - more sandy if someone with you has difficulty with rocks. But Andante Loop is not shady. I added the circumference of Chimney Rock which was beautiful as it gives views SW - but it has a climb up to start with off of the Thunder Mountain trail ( probably ranks as Medium).

Most of this hike has little to no shade. The time to complete is about 5 or 6 hrs. It’s a beast. I would not do this hike if it’s hotter than 90. Need to be in semi decent shape as it’s all inclined. Great view. Be sure to check the temp. I checked the night before and it was low 90s then I did the hike starting at 8 and struggled towards the end learning it was about 99. My fault obv. Brought 3.5 L of water and went through all of it. That sun toasted tf outta me. Happy trails

This trail kicked my 63 year old butt mainly because I inadvertently added about a half mile to it by not paying attention to this app and having to backtrack. Take plenty of water and don't get caught in the heat. The trail offers great views and has plenty of slope up and down. Access points are weird but not hard to figure out. I recommend this trail. Fantastic excercise.

This is a great trail! Very fun but difficult going up and can be a little slippery but views on top of Wilson mountain are beautiful you leave the red rock and hit the forest making it a cooler temperature. Would recommend but make sure to bring plenty of water and some lunch!

Have to pay to park but it was totally worth it. Beautiful views! We did it when it was still cool out so the heat wasn’t a problem. Took our dog with and she only had a little struggle at the very end when it’s gets steep to get to the very top. Overall a great short hike I would do again!!

Phew! This trail was a real challenge, but such a great one! Unfortunately i started super late and came back in the dark which was a bit rough on my own but exciting! It was nice to be later and not so hot but boy I can see how it would be a scorcher midday!! Follow the rock pile trail markers is my best advice. You can’t tell shit with just the map overlay about half way up. Thankfully respectful hikers maintain these markers and if you keep an eye out you’ll maintain your way! I for sure got turned around a few times but just be smart and keep at it!

Nice and easy trail. Be sure to end the trail near Buddha beach and bring a picnic! Such a lovely area to soak your feet and chill after your hike. :) The trail begins behind the parking lot. Dog friendly trail

Got to the parking lot by 7am and got a spot in the overflow. Cathedral Rock was too steep for our big dog, so we ended up doing Templeton to the river. It was gorgeous and our dog and kids were in heaven. It’s so lush and green. We swam, found crawdads, and ate lunch. Also my husband lost his Apple Watch in the river, so keep your eyes peeled for it. Lol. On the way back my watch-less husband and 8 year old went up Cathedral while I hung back with the dog and lazy 6 year old they loved it!

This trail was pretty frustrating. We kept going off trail and kept having to look at the map to get back on the trail. Felt like I had to keep staring at the map on my phone instead of just following a path and enjoying the views. This one is also in a more residential area where you can see power lines and houses. Parking lot is bigger than some of the other lots that I've seen for Sedona trails, but still get there early to increase your chances of getting a space. The path to the summit was a bit more strenuous than what I thought (was hoping for a break after the previous hikes). Great little walk if you want to stroll around and explore leisurely.
