If you have kids and you want something fun to do take them here. If you're serious hikers and hate crowds, stay away! Bathrooms are overused. The views are just as nice from the road.

Took my 9 and 5 year old up to the top. The last part of the trail was a little difficult for the 5 year old but she made it no problem. However, after doing the trail, I wouldn’t recommend for small children on the last part of the trail. Regardless, great trail and views. A must do in Sedona.

The rock climbing makes this a moderate hike. Best to wear good shoes. Amazing views, beautiful colors. About a mile up.

This is a straight up rock climb. You spend much time on all fours. Always watching your step, not appreciating scenery. Also, too crowded while I was there. There were little ones and pets that maybe should not have been on the hike. I say this only because there is much of the hike that is one lane/one way narrow. The power hikers and rock climbers that do belong on this hike make it worse because there is no fast lane. Most everyone is polite or waits for other hikers in the narrow spots but if even just a few don’t wait their turn and try to pass or are right on your butt in all four situation it can be uncomfortable, dangerous, or for me, just not relaxing nor invigorating.

Views were so beautiful,
It was busy during spring break so it was hard to find a place to park.
Worth the visit to see the church and stunning views of the valley below.
