You will take a drive about 15-25 minutes outside of Sedona. It can be a very busy trail-- so parking is a challenge-- though the trail itself is rarely crowded. Nice views! Don't accidentally get too far off the trail at the top or you could get a bit lost...

We took this short trail to the top of a mesa. From there you could see the beautiful colors reflect off the mountains on the east, and watch the sunset from the west. The hike gets a little steep and rocky towards the top.

This hike is moderate but not good for anyone with bad knees. Climbing down was a bit more treacherous than hiking up the mountain, but the views at the top were well worth the effort.

We were told about this trail by people staying at our hotel. Glad we made the effort. Good parking and great well marked trail to the top. The views on the way are amazing. Make this 1 of your hikes.

Doe Mountain is one of my favorite local hikes because of the fabulous 360 degree views from topside of this expansive plateau. Hike is of moderate difficulty .7 miles (all up, switchbacks--no flat) most family members can do & takes on average about 20 minutes to top. Once on top a web of trails traverse the top disappearing altogether the... More

This is actually a review of and itinerary for the Aerie Trail near Doe Mountain, Sedona AZ. We found winter hiking here wonderful, even amidst snow squalls with temperatures in the 40s and upper 30s F. The winter clouds and sunlight make the red rocks fantastic and atmospheric. We accessed the trail from the Fay Canyon Trailhead parking lot (complete... More

This is a short, but steep hike with astounding views at the top. If you circle the mesa, you will get views from every side that are spectacular.

Pretty easy to get to the top and great views once you get there. Was a bit windy and therefore a little chilly. Would be a fun spot for a picnic.

This is must-do trail. It is both a hike and climb. Definitely can be done by anyone with moderate physical ability, but the trail is relatively narrow with steep cliffs, so be mindful in taking small children. The first quarter to half mile is an ascending hike, so it will get your blood flowing, but then a relatively mild walk/climb.... More
