When people say "5 mile hike" I usually take that to mean round trip... but in this case, it's actually about 5 miles to the true summit, and another 5 miles back. Be aware - this is actually a very difficult hike, and takes several...More

We stopped here during a quick trip to Sedona. It was a nice hike. The scenery was great. Just be prepared and bring plenty of water.

Challenging not only due to length, but also elevation. Some moderate scrambles toward the beginning, nothing that someone in decent shape and mobility can't handle. There is not much of a break in climbing, there are a few flat spots but you are pretty much...More
