This is a moderately challenging hike. We enjoyed the hike and loved the scenery. Hiking in Sedona is the best!

Flat 2 mile hike with amazing scenery. The trail follows a small stream into the canyon. Red Rock walls surround you. Just amazing

Beautiful trail appropriate for all ages. Easy hike through canyon with breathtaking views along the way. At end of trail, climb up the rocks to the top for even more spectacular views.

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....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...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...More
