This was one of the best hikes I've ever had! Went out to Arizona for exactly what Cathedral Rock had to offer. This hike has everything; Challenges, obstacles, rest points, open space and the best view I was able to experience. Can't wait for you to see it for yourself.

This was a beautiful hikes. It is not hard but the beauty is stunning. I am constantly in awe of the energy of these vortex. Being in nature and seeing all the beauty and taking time to ground and be with Mother Nature. One feels the calm beauty all around you.

Spent thanksgiving with my husband and my family in Sedona. As a post-feast activity, we hiked the cathedral rock trail. It was a relatively quick, but quite steep hike. The view from the top is more than worth the effort!!

It is a quick little hike you can easily do within 2 hours. I was on a road trip and got a morning free while my friends doing laundry, so thought of climbing cathedral. It is considered as a strenuous hike on some sedona which takes like 45 mins but I completed it within 31 mins without much of a... More

There are many levels of the climb from the base which are both subtle and then very challenging the higher one goes. Bikers and Hikers populate this popular site. The paths are well maintained and are helpful for those who might hold some trepidation for the climb.

We went to Sedona over Thanksgiving week and did a few hikes there, this is by far my favorite!! It's intense though. I was expecting a hike, this really isn't a hike. It's more like endless rock climbing. Most of them you can walk up and down, but there are many spots where you will have to use all four... More
