  • This hike is not for everyone. It is difficult and extreme. But for those who are up to the challenge, it is worth the effort. The views are simply incredible. My guide, Taylor was the BEST!  more »

  • This was a great hike in December and we didn't have any snow! We still used up every bit of our water so make sure to bring some with you along with snacks. If you do this in the summer (or any time really) bring exposure protection because there isn't a ton of shade for the whole trail. This hike offers great views of the surrounding areas like us down in the other uploaded pictures.
  • Good hike made on New Year's day 2016. Great view of Humphreys peak from the top.
  • Challenging but rewarding trail. Beautiful views of Sedona and surrounding scape from the first rim and from the end of the trail. The white rock towards the end of the trail has embedded marine fossils (seashells).
  • Great hike with amazing views. Really steep and Rocky so don't underestimate the difficulty just based on distance.
  • Great trail. Can be challenging at times.
