This is a great family hike that provides some gorgeous views. A must see / do for anyone traveling to Sedona. Start out early in the am before it gets too warm and stop at Enchantment resort on the way back for breakfast.

I have a group of 60 people. Do we need to make any specials arrangements to hike this trail? How long does it take and how difficult is the hike.
