This is a super easy trail with gorgeous views. Stellar Sedona scenery all around! It is both dog and kid friendly but be careful in the heat of the day because the trail has very little shade. Add the extra mile to go to the end of the Wilson Canyon trail, which is really fantastic.

The first .4 is low then it climbs to views of Fin, Ship rock, and Steamboat rock. We hiked the first two miles and enjoyed the sunrise views!
