Easy, beautiful hike

Not sure of the length as one brochure said 1.2 miles one way and another said 2.5 one way. I think it's in between. Hike gradually uphill in the canyon with wonderful red rock... read more

Not sure of the length as one brochure said 1.2 miles one way and another said 2.5 one way. I think it's in between. Hike gradually uphill in the canyon with wonderful red rock formations all around. Go back on the same trail.

The main trail is very nice, flat and easy. There is a natural arch in the canyon wall on the right hand side about 1/4 mile from the start of the trail. The trail leading up the arch is not well marked and is quite narrow. On the right hand side of the trail look for a small cairn which... More

Did this hike in the afternoon after hiking cathedral rock. It was a perfect second hike of the day, as it was less strenuous. Less peopled and quieter. Gorgeous rock formations to view from the canyon. A hike that was nicely paired for the day. A morning steep hike up cathedral rock with views from above and then this canyon... More

Beautiful and easy trail. However, at the end, if you don't climb, you don't get a grand view of the canyon. After doing Devil's Bridge the day before, we just couldn't bring ourselves to climb more rocks. We just enjoyed the maintained part of the trail. It wasn't long, so it's a good trail to do if you are short... More

This is a very easy trail to go on to get to the end of the canyon. What makes is absolutely fantastic is, once reaching the end, you power up, up, up and get above the tree line. The view is amazing and it is definitely worth climbing around up there, just be careful! Only a parking pass is necessary,... More

We took this hike after doing Doe Mountain. It was a good choice and the hike was comparably easier. I would think the hike would be much more enjoyable if the stream bed had water. It was bone dry.

Got a good close view of the terrain around Sedona. Nice rocks and the trail was pretty gentle. Dusty, but what would you expect?

Nice little stroll in a cool little canyon. The little kids, seniors, etc will all do fine on this one.

Very nice fairly flat hike. We read some reviews that mentioned sunset and stargazing. They must have meant at the trailhead? The trail is fairly shaded and ends at the bottom of a canyon. Beautiful hike with the canyon walls around you but not for either sunset or stars. Although we had a good starscape back at the trailhead after... More
