This was an easy trail that was very well marked and well travelled. It was very busy early on, but thinned out after about a mile. There is ample shade in the trees and beautiful views from the bottom of the canyon.

Nice trail with a beautiful hike along the creek. Many trees, water and ferns which nice shade for a hot day! I took my dog of 13 years old and she loved it--easy hike and lots of water. One of the most beautiful trails in Sedona--but also one of the most crowded. Go there during the week early.

Beautiful trail - extremely picturesque! The sign at the trail says moderate but I would say in between easy and moderate.

We definitely hiked more than 6 miles to get to the narrow canyon at the end. I think we ended up around 8 in total. Not sure if we stopped past the official final spot.

The trail is gorgeous! Definitely worth doing this trail of you have the opportunity.

What an amazing hike. Great places to stop and enjoy nature. Lots of small streams. All the streams have rocks that you can climb over to avoid getting wet or you can walk across the stream if that's what you wish. It was 94 degrees in Sedona but while your hiking you do feel it at all. The shade and cool water off the streams keep it very pleasant while you hike.

One of my favorite hikes in Sedona. Very beautiful views, make sure to bring water with you, especially if you do the whole hike.
