  • If you go for sunset, make sure to go early, as in over an hour and half early. The parking lot is very tiny, so there's all sorts of crazy traffic trying to get in and out. The hike to the top is fairly easy and very short, which is why it's so popular. you get a great 360 view of the area though and the sunset was beautiful!
  • Here's a simple truth: put one foot in front of the other, take your time, breathe as you step upward, and be ready to be Still and Contemplative at the top, after the jaw dropping views, picture taking, social media posting, and shared words with your hiking buddies. This is one of the places you came to Sedona to sit with and Be. It is worth it... like you! Peace
  • Beautiful view, nice place to meditate and catch a breath. Such a relaxing place.
  • Great hike, super view and trails are well marked.
  • Beautiful view and surroundings. Parking can be a challenge, so drive up higher and hike to the vortex.
