Brins Mesa Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is a mostly on-trail hike—with a short section of easy cross-country—to a very scenic viewpoint overlooking Sedona, Dry Creek, and the high cliffs of Wilson Mountain. It is in the Red Rock–Secret Mountain Wilderness."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Northern Arizona (Falcon Guides).
"There are two Brins Mesa trailheads. This one begins from the east near Uptown Sedona. The other trailhead begins from the west in the Dry Creek area. Our hike climbs northwest to the mesa top. The views along the trail, as well as atop the mesa, are breathtaking. This area offers views of the surrounding mountains and red rock formations in every direction. The town of Sedona is also in full view 800 feet below."
