Cathedral Rock, Sedona

(4.9/5 based on 4,000+ reviews on the web)
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. With our international travel planner, Sedona attractions like Cathedral Rock can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
