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.

Trail was well marked. Distance is just right to get you out of the hustle and bustle, yet you don't have to hike hours and hours. We hiked just under an hour in and then took about 40 min to get back. Takes you back...More

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.
