We got here as the parking lot opened. You do not need a pass but don't park outside the lot. It fills up fast hybrid time we left around 1030 in a Tuesday it was 3/4 full.

We were looking for a good 2-3 hour hike and this one was great! It has some variety but not overly challenging. Nice views and some interesting geographical formations including a big sink hole. Great way to spend half a day!
Lots of things to see on this hike. The arch is way cool as you can climb up into its cave. we got caught in a sleet/lightning storm that day but rode it out in the arch cave. nice views up to brins mesa! limited...More

In our opinion, plan for 1 1/2 to 2 hours unless you have the DNA of a high-hoofing mountain goat and the stamina of a camel (most mortals need to sit and wait until their pulse rates recover). During our last outing up in the Sedona landscape on this route, we needed to provide water for 2 dogs and 3 people (we pack enough water to hydrate the Donner Party) ....
It's not that it is too terribly hot or difficult a hike, but there is enough of a terrain difference and changes in altitude to make this not your usual walk in the park. And, besides, you will want to stop and admire the views, marvel at the wonders of nature, and take way too many pictures.
Pack a little package of nuts to nibble on, as well as adequate amounts of water to drink (nothing is available along the trail so be prepared). Wear sunscreen and a sun hat (listen to mom!) and good sturdy shoes. Your body will thank you later.
Sedona is a true gift, as you are out walking, there will be so many other trails to take everywhere. Almost every road is a trail head and the adventures just keep on coming! I envy you, enjoy the experience!
