Great trails and views. Would rate them as easy with maybe a couple of moderate spots toward the back end where you climb up to the top. Great views of the surrounding area and pretty rock formations.

Favorite hike in Sedona!

Once you have sorted out the fairly confusing start where a number of trails intersect this is a terrific walk. It is possible to walk right around the Cathedral using other trails though I didn't have enough time. Need to mention the staff in Sedona visitors centre (note - the official one not the Hyatt promotional office) are very helpful with detailed maps.etc of hikes in the area.

Nice easy walk spoiled by the cacophony of sound from the nearby jeep tours at least at weekends. Don't try this one if you treasure any semblance of peace and quiet on your hikes. Try Cathedral Butte fairly close by.

Thought it was excellent. Though I walked for only an hour and 30 mins before turning the rewards were immediate in terms of views and panoramas. I hope to return next year to walk the whole trail. The only test it fails is the lack of the true British standard of pub at the start/finish

Sorry tapped wrong button. Definitely 4 stars at least

One of good hiking spots in Phoenix. High elevation. Currently road work is in progress, so there is little trouble in parking, otherwise there are two parking areas available. total distance 1.03 miles it takes approx 35 mins for an average hiker to reach the top and 25 mins to come back to starting point. Best spot to view sun rise...

This was truly a great experience! This natural wonder needs to be seen and enjoyed by all ages!

Great loop - not too hard and beautiful views from the top!

We started this hike at 7:30am on a Saturday. Glad we went so early because it started to get very crowded. The parking lot was completely full when we finished. This is more of a moderate hike and not a hard hike. It took us 2 hours and 20min to finish the whole hike. We hiked into the saddle, took a few pictures and headed down. The views are absolutely stunning this entire hike. Dirt road is about 7 mile and we saw a lot of cars that were easily able to get there. Watch out for the rattle snakes.

A beautiful hike with beautiful views- heavily trafficked as reported. The only thing that surprised us is that a big portion of the trail is available to 4- wheel drives, so we recommend you bring a scarf to manage dust and unexpected fumes. And enjoy!

Great trail. It had views in every direction throughout the hike up. I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun hike.

Took my WIfe and I about 2 hours to hike up and come back down.

Beautiful trail. Definitely should be rated as moderate and not hard. I logged 7.5 mi out and back. At the trails end (approx 3.6mi out) there is a sign that says camping permitted beyond this point.

We really liked the dry water beds and the variety of shade and open air. We are old so it kicked our ass a bit and we don't understand why because 4 miles isn't that big of a deal. We has confused.
