Great, hike. Moderate, some climbing required

MY GPS TOLD ME THIS HIKE WAS 11.6 MILES NOT 7.5 MILES. The elevation gain was also about 2600 feet.

Hiked down into the gulch and back up. It took a little over 5 hours. When parking at the summit, head north on the road past the gate, and immediately after the first comm tower, turn left onto the service road. When the first split comes, take a left for Lemmon Rock Trail south. Take that for the first 3.5 miles to where it splits and the train begins to go north-east, or south-west. Take the southwest route until it dead ends into Mount Lemmon Trail #5, and continue north.

Nice hike, easy and quiet.

I like this moderate trail, it's a loop and it takes me about two hours to complete it. sometimes it can be little crowded tho, specially on Sundays.

Beautiful hike that ends on a service road for the radio towers. Climbed up the lookout tower for fantastic views. Millions of ladybugs clumped in the bushes! Easy access and well marked with plastic diamonds nailed to the trees. I’ve never seen so many downed trees. One 3-foot diameter tree completely snapped off. Glad we weren’t there on that day!

beautiful trail. at the crossroads at top of ridge where you hang a right, we stayed straight for about another 0.25mi and wound up on a small rock with fantastic 360 panoramic views of the awesome Sedona landscape. worth a stop if you're up there already.

A moderately tough climb due to Elevation, loose rocks and gravel. Well worth the effort as you reach the summit the views are fantastic.

I love this trail, there are so many variations of it, every hike is different. After the rains.lots of pools with tadpoles. great way to spend a hour or two. people you meet are always friendly.

Awesome all three times I visited this amazing place!

I’m sure this is a great trail but the only way to get to the GPS coordinates is by trespassing. Wasted my wife’s morning getting here and now I feel awful - thanks.

nice paved walk

can't rate this appropriately. we have been planning this hike for over a month. went on their site and nothing mentioned that it was closed. very frustrating and disappointed. we will however come back and conquer this goal.

Private, pretty, good moderate trail.

Great loop - close to town. Nice daily hike to get off the road.

Deceptively easy for the first four miles, but the last mile is a burner. We continued right on the Secret Mountain trail for another three miles for a total of 16 round trip. We had the trail to ourselves. Good hike.

Most outstanding views seen here. Began hiking at 2AM for sunrise & hit it right on the dot. SO worth the early hours!!!

Hiked this on July 6th. The parking lot was full when we arrived, so we parked 1/2 mile up the road and paid the $2/person walk-in entry fee.

This was our second time here. The first was in winter, presented with a fantasy of icicles on the red rock overhangs and crust ice on the pools. Not this time. What a wealth of biodiversity. One highlight was a bright red, black and white king snake, later keyed out as the Sonora mountain variety. Also many hummingbirds and butterflies, many unique pockets of plant and insect life nestled in the curves of the creek. Don't get me wrong, I love the deep cut red rock canyon and the patterns of white and black minerals, but more, the way sunlight reflected off the creek plays on the darker walls.

We hiked and waded about an extra mile past the official end of the trail. I wore Teva' s and my wife wore tennis shoes. Follow the instinct to continue, well worth it.

An amazing hike with copious lizards, a random gopher? snake, and worthy tribute to 19 fallen heroes. Challenge your emotions at each stage of the trail. And please think of the sacrifice that took place here before you decide to destroy the trail with shortcuts.

Beautiful sunset! I never get sick of this mountain

Great hike. As some of the other reviewers stated we also ran into a mountain bike rider. However very nice and shared the space with no problems. We started the hike with other hikers on the trail however there are so many off-shoots to this trail we ended up not seeing any other hikers. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. There is not a lot of shade so the temps can get warm. Plan on hiking early and bring lot's of water.

One word.... “Amazing”!

Beautiful views! Short, easy hike with massive payoffs! Toilet available at the end, along with picnic tables and grill for picnicking while watching the sunrise or sunset over the south rim of the canyon.

A tuff hike, make sure you are mentally and physically prepared for it.

Did this trail this morning. There was not a lot of traffic when I went. There was 10 people that I came across at 5 different occasions. Once you park, the trailhead is .1 or .2 miles away. The trailhead states that the trail is 4.2 miles long, however, I don’t think that adds the distance of the “extreme” trail. My distance at the end was 5.9 miles and it took me 2.5 hours. I’m personally out of shape and found some parts of the trail strenuous. However, the trail was well marked and I took the more difficult trails. This trail is surrounded by the city, but offers amazing views.
