#1 of 23 in Parks in Sedona
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
Soak in the dramatic scenery of red desert hills and endless blue sky while hiking at Cathedral Rock. One of the state’s most iconic landmarks, the sandstone rock formation takes the shape of a cathedral perched majestically above the rest of the landscape. Wind through the rock’s three saddles, or gaps, on the short but steep 2.4 km (1.5 mi) hike. Be sure to carry extra water and wear sturdy hiking shoes with you as the trail is rigorous in certain places.

  • Hike to the top of the rock or better yet hike down to Oakcreek stream and enjoy the water and the view back toward Cathedral Rock. Great photo ops.  more »
  • If you visit Sedona you need to take the drive to this spot. It's beautiful and you can get some great photos not only of the cathedral but the views are amazing.  more »
  • Looks different in different light of the day. Can access different hiking trails from either side. Visit the information centers for trail maps and there is a $5 a day fee for the Red Rock Parks.  more »
