Devils Bridge

Sedona, AZ

Was steep but a short hike. The trail was in moderate shape. Was slippery in places with pea gravel. Great wiew from the top. The trail went to the top of this one. This is a heavily traveled attraction.

Completed this trail yesterday, it was really nice experience :) It took 3 hrs to reach to the top and 2:15 min to come down.

Advice:- Check whether before planning your trail and take one small jacket. Its cold and windy on top.

Lots of fun! A scramble at the mouth of the tubes but pretty flat for the rest of the hike. It's really amazing to walk in an old lava tube, a hike u have to do!

Marshall Lake

I hiked from Marshall Lake to Fisher Point View (this is about a 6.5 mile section of the AZT). I could hardly notice that I was hiking down into a canyon due to the long and winding subtle descent. But since its over 13 miles round trip I did feel pretty tired when I finished. The first 5 miles or so are unvaried scenery through ponderosa forest. There are maybe 2 or 3 steep but very brief drops. Once in the canyon (almost 5 miles in), it's a beautiful walk through open meadows and eventually past Walnut Canyon National Monument. At the monument it's another .5 mile up to Fisher Point where you get a nice view of the canyon and meadows you just walked below.

I enjoyed the hike. Difficult with a dog because it is steep. Got only halfway because the humans and dog were starting to get a little overheated in the summer. Recommend bringing a lot of water.

Great hike. Difficult with a dog because parts are a little steep. Went only halfway because the dog and humans were getting a little overheated. I'd recommend if you are doing it in the summer bring lots of water.

Lockett Meadow - Waterline Loop

Take US-89 about 12 miles north of city center. Turn left directly across from the turn to Sunset Crater. The left turn is on to a Forest Access Road (FR 420). Take this ½ mile to a T and turn right onto FR 522. This goes 4.6 miles on a very bumpy, some areas washboard grated, ascent. Road is narrow with areas to pull out every few 100 yards in case another car is coming the opposite direct. This was a little nerve wracking as you can’t see ahead very far. I wouldn't do this again without AWD or 4WD. After 4.6 miles of painfully slow driving you come to a pretty clearing of yellow flowers and grass = Locket Meadow. Signs take you to day parking, which is free and located near an outhouse.
Very remote. Saw some camps set up but only 4 people during the entire hike. No cell service.
The hike was pretty in the summer, but I'm sure dramatically beautiful during fall foliage time. There is a gradual ascent for 4.25 miles going from altitude of 8600 feet to ~10.5K feet. The first part is full of white, yellow, blue and purple wildflowers, then you see old signs of the Schultz fire with burned out trees/fields. It becomes a birch and aspen forest with several switch backs. This turns to a pine forest and the trail opens up onto a a forest road where you can turn left to Schultz Tank or continue right on Inner Basin. At 1.6 miles, you reach the old Watershed Cabins—in the center of these there is a spigot where you can get untreated spring water. More trail signs here. Staying on Inner Basin, you pass a few Flagstaff well sites and can hear water rushing beneath. It continues to be a wide forest road until reaching the inner basin clearing. There is a tiny shelter here where 2 or 3 people could hang out if a monsoon crept up. Beyond this the road narrows and the path turns to small rocks that were slippery. Clearing turns back into forest and patches of snow were on the ground even at the end of July. The final trail sign I saw pointed to a sharp left but the trail seemed to stop shortly after this at ~4.25 total miles.

Sunset Trail

I did the loop from Fatman's-->Christmas Tree-->Sandy Seep-->Heart-->Sunset-->Elden Lookout. Sunset was a welcomed easy portion that offered very different views including a grassy, windy catwalk and some shady forest. See notes on Heart Trail for the difficulty I encountered staying on the trail.
