Right from the start. We huffed and puffed for over two hours until we ran out of steam. We were on Wilson Mountain South Trail. I will say the views from up top were incredible and worth the climb.

The view at the top is worth the hike but what a hike. 10 miles round trip over perhaps the rockiest trail in all of Sedona. Pick a perfect day, not too hot, not too cool, some clouds but no rain. Trail is exposed. And...More

Amazing. We climbed from the bridge to the peak even though we hit 6 inches of snow in some parts. What a view. Saw three deer on the way back down. 6 hr, 9 miles and 2500 feet elevation gain.

Hiked this trail by first following the branch that goes down by the creek/river, then took the branch that climbs the mountain. A well hiked trail with the usual rocks encountered on most Sedona trails. Views are nice at various points of the hike.

We did the north trail and went along Mount Wilson to the end of the trail. We skipped the Sedona overlook on this trip (we'll be doing this one again for sure). The trail was amazing with tons of colors. I highly recommend this one...More
