Varied terrain on an easy trail. You can hike, run or bike here. We were originally going to hike to the chapel, but stayed on to Chicken Point--that's the way to go! At the top you get a beautiful view. I recommend going early. When...More

Trail was well marked. Distance is just right to get you out of the hustle and bustle, yet you don't have to hike hours and hours. We hiked just under an hour in and then took about 40 min to get back. Takes you back...More

An easy 3.7 miles round trip. The views from the observation point were spectacular!!!! There is a 0.8 mile round trip extension to the Chapel of the Holy Cross (Frank Lloyd Wright inspired).

There are so many varied 'ecosystems' on this hike! Be sure to notice the bushes with the blue bark and the blue rocks nearby. A lot of this trail is exposed so a hat & sunscreen are recommended on hot, sunny days. There were pretty...More

I think your question has been answered - just wanted to add that you can extend the hike if you wish. It's a great hike and the rocks at the end of Little Horse are great for a picnic.
Little Horse Trail sounds great, but how do I find it?

There are signs along the highway that let you know where it is located. I believe the signs say "Little Horse Trailhead," if memory serves me correctly... but if you are staying within Sedona and drive out of town on 179... More
