Stunning scenery and the trail was simple to follow. Want to backpack next time.

This is a beautiful trail. I suggest anyone in Sedona devote a morning to this. Despite google gps and the website saying the parking doesn't open until 9am when I arrived at 8am there was already some cars there. When I returned three hours later, after the hike, at 11am there was a long line of cars waiting for a parking spot to open. The other benefit to going early is you can beat the heat of the summer. When I started the hike it was about 75 and when it ended it was over 100 degrees. The only downside I found to this trail was that it's busy. Don't forget a camera!

Upper third is great. Some rock scrambles made it fun. Bridge at top is awesome. I took the chuck wagon trail out of parking lot and came back via the creek bed trail to check it out - not that nice at all and lots of foot traffic. If you have a bit more time and want a very nice scenic trail to begin take chuck wagon. It's very easy with trees and shade etc. Upper part is a bit more difficult for the beginner but intermediate and advanced hikers will have no problem.

Beautiful trail, great views, hiked the Meadow trail down and came back up the Mt Lemmon trail. If your looking for a nice cardio workout the hike back up the Mt Lemmon trail will do it. 300 ft elevation increase over the last 1/2 mile or so.

Amazing views!

Great hike. Bring lots of water and sun protection.

I would rate this as difficult just because of the climb back up to the rim in hot weather. Great trail; took us a bit to find the water at Roaring Springs, someone yelled at us and we turned a hard right and walked further down to the bathroom area.

Beautiful scenery, a true desert experience. However, I would not agree with the kid friendly. Yes, we completed and no one got hurt, but it was not exactly exciting for a 5 year old. Would be better after monsoon season when the water features aren't bone-dry, but on a hot day with little to no shade, it was a stretch.
