    Probably my most favorite hike in Sedona for sunsets despite the crowds. Once you reach the top you can hike to the left and follow the trail to the vortex. On the way down there is an unmarked trail that brings you to the west face. Both detours had 0 people despite the top being crowded! The sunset colors are amazing from both places and the red rocks truly glow!

    Rather steep ascent, but plenty of opportunities to stop along the way to permit other hikers to pass on the narrow trail. Views at the top are spectacular and you can see the entire valley to the West, (and East). Very heavily populated trail in tourist season.

    Very satisfying hike. Up a short trail to the foot of the rock and then a moderate climb up the rock. Great views on the way up. Minimal shade opportunities on the way up but the peak was cool and a great place to recharge for the descent.

This is a vertical hike over a very short distance 750 ft ascent that was challenging at times
