  • 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
  • Great hike, super view and trails are well marked.
  • Beautiful view, nice place to meditate and catch a breath. Such a relaxing place.
  • Beautiful view and surroundings. Parking can be a challenge, so drive up higher and hike to the vortex.
  • Incredible and spiritual scenery
