Doe Mtn Professional Reviews and Guides

"The top of Doe Mountain features fine views of Bear Mountain and the Dry Creek basin."

"By looking up at Doe Mountain, it appears to be an awesome, difficult hike. The gentle zigzag switchbacks make it a moderate climb. The views from the 400-foot sage-scented plateau are worth it. Along the trail, are close-up views of caves and rock sculptures in the weathered cliffs. From the vast mesa, you can easily spend the whole day exploring and marveling at the variety of vegetation and the 360-degree vistas."

About 3/4 uphill but the views are more than worth it.

This hike was recommended to us at the visitor center in Sedona. It is doable by anyone with an average fitness level. Views are stunning all along the trail and there is plenty of space on top to relax away from the other hikers. The trail wasn't crowded with us seeing about a dozen other hikers.

The Falcon Guide does nothing for this trail. Just under a mile from the base to the top and an increase of 400 feet. It is a moderate hike to a level plateau. My wife and I are both over 60, and arrived at the top in less than 45 minutes. Once on top, the vistas east to Sedona, north to the red rocks, and west to Bear Mountain are inspiring. Unfortunately, the southern view was marred by the noise from new construction just beyond the base of the mountain. Looking at the obviously water scored walls of the mountain, it was difficult to comprehend the eons of time since this plateau in the middle of the desert was beneath water. Birds abounded on the trail up, and javelina tracks criss-crossed the plateau top. Little solitude, we met over 20 other hikers from 18 to 70 on a weekday.
