This trail brings you to chicken point..Were the jeeps meet up. Bring enough water & go at your pace. It will be great. I did it at 70 years old.

We enjoyed it, but it was hot that day. We hiked up this and then connected to the trail up to the chapel, which was pretty awesome, even in the heat. It was hilly, so take plenty of water

As a regular hiker in my home in WV, I'm used to hiking the Appalachian Mtns, so this trail was easy enough for me. I feel most able bodied individuals could complete without difficulty. I am used to trails with more cover and there is...More

This hike is fairly easy - about 3.8 miles total and finished in about an hour and 15. Started early to avoid the heat, and it was very quiet and peaceful. You rarely see a Jeep tour (I promise they don't bother you despite what...More

Arizona sun gets very hot, so plenty of water is needed. Nice views along this trail, saw some beautiful cactus flowers along the way.

Very good path, wide and open most of the way, with nominal rocks. Some mnt bikers, more hikers when we were there. Great views! Cut-off to Chapel is a tougher, rockier climb, but getting to the Chapel is cool, and going into the Chapel is...More

Easily found off the highway between Bell Rock and Sedona, this is a pleasant and easy hike that brings you right up to the chapel. Some lovely views again.

I think your question has been answered - just wanted to add that you can extend the hike if you wish. It's a great hike and the rocks at the end of Little Horse are great for a picnic.
