Hiking Northern Arizona

Note that you need to cross Oak Creek. Plan on at least shin-deep water. Trail was poorly maintained--overgrown and hardly visible in places, the footing was large (3 to 5 inch) rocks most of the way up, but since it was the side of the mountain, obvious where to go. At the top, the trail was very poorly marked and we wasted a lot of time trying to stay on the trail. When we finally found the scenic overlook at the end of the trail, there was a lovely couple standing there who had simply driven up Schnebly Drive in their car. A disappointment, since this trail, though shorter than Wilson Mountain, seemed much more difficult because of the poor footing and poor trail marking. Would I recommend it? No, not unless you are trying to hit every trail in Sedona. Much better mountain hikes on other trails, such as Wilson Mountain or Bear Mountain.
