Good Short Trail!

We hit this one and two others on the same day. Great views and worth adding to your list as this one is close proximity to several others.

Just another of the many fine hikes available in the area. Great views. A little rocky and steep in parts, but " moderate" is a good overall decription

Panaromic views abound on the Doe Mountain Trail from the moment you park your vehicle to the moment you reach the mesa's summit. Oh yes, it's flat on top and easy to cross for alternate views. I would recommend this climb for those who are not in shape, however in late fall, winter, or early spring most kids and parents... More

You will take a drive about 15-25 minutes outside of Sedona. It can be a very busy trail-- so parking is a challenge-- though the trail itself is rarely crowded. Nice views! Don't accidentally get too far off the trail at the top or you could get a bit lost...

We took this short trail to the top of a mesa. From there you could see the beautiful colors reflect off the mountains on the east, and watch the sunset from the west. The hike gets a little steep and rocky towards the top.

This hike is moderate but not good for anyone with bad knees. Climbing down was a bit more treacherous than hiking up the mountain, but the views at the top were well worth the effort.

We were told about this trail by people staying at our hotel. Glad we made the effort. Good parking and great well marked trail to the top. The views on the way are amazing. Make this 1 of your hikes.

Doe Mountain is one of my favorite local hikes because of the fabulous 360 degree views from topside of this expansive plateau. Hike is of moderate difficulty .7 miles (all up, switchbacks--no flat) most family members can do & takes on average about 20 minutes to top. Once on top a web of trails traverse the top disappearing altogether the... More

This is actually a review of and itinerary for the Aerie Trail near Doe Mountain, Sedona AZ. We found winter hiking here wonderful, even amidst snow squalls with temperatures in the 40s and upper 30s F. The winter clouds and sunlight make the red rocks fantastic and atmospheric. We accessed the trail from the Fay Canyon Trailhead parking lot (complete... More

This is a short, but steep hike with astounding views at the top. If you circle the mesa, you will get views from every side that are spectacular.
