Amazing. We climbed from the bridge to the peak even though we hit 6 inches of snow in some parts. What a view. Saw three deer on the way back down. 6 hr, 9 miles and 2500 feet elevation gain.

Hiked this trail by first following the branch that goes down by the creek/river, then took the branch that climbs the mountain. A well hiked trail with the usual rocks encountered on most Sedona trails. Views are nice at various points of the hike.
