What more can you ask for than sitting under these magnificent natural structures. Great photo opportunities and a nice peaceful walk.

We chose to try an early morning appraisal of the iconic rocks, but between hazy/cloudy skies and no clear breaks in the cloud cover, lighting was disappointing. The formation itself is awe-inspiring and not to be missed. We drove out the Verde Valley School Road...More

Worth the climb, its beautiful up there. The difficult sections include some rock climbing (and declining) that required us scooting on our bottoms down - but definitely doable. At top there is a beautiful breeze and never ending vistas of sedona. Worth the effort! Bring...More

My husband and I did this hike to the view point and we LOVED it. Just know that you really have to scale rocks to get to the top so it's not suitable for really little kids or people who have trouble climbing. If you're...More
