    A very simple, beautiful walk that is definitely kid-friendly. The contrast between the bright red rocks and rich green juniper is gorgeous. Devil's Kitchen is the most active sinkhole in Sedona and the Seven Sacred Pools are a beautiful group of descending pools carved in deep red sandstone. A must see if you are in the Sedona area.

    Did the trail in a stock H3. Trail was hard packed and dry. Great views and close to town. Coffee was still warm at the end.

    Great hike. We did it with a 5 and 3 year old and they both had no problem. There were many interesting features on a short hike. It was far enough from the jeep trail except at the seven sacred pool that the vehicles didn't interfere with the hike. I think this is the top kids hike in the Sedona area.

    Gave it three stars due to being short in the length. Best time to catch the seven sacred pools is after a good rain. Makes for a good waterfall. Just watch out for pink jeeps there aren't very pull outs to pass.

    Ran this trail before the fires. It was beautiful, but very very short. The 7 holes are worth stopping at. Good for a quick afternoon run.

    Ran it in 2WD, open diffs, 32x11.50 Dunlop Mud-Rovers aired down to 20psi. Rock sliders and skidplates are recommended for lower clearance vehicles, but it is doable in a stock truck with low tire pressures.

    Great short trail, gets upclose to"Red Rocks"... easy acces to hiking trails. Rated difficult but with a lift and low tire pressure it is not all that difficult.

    Nice easy hike up to the Mesa. The temp in Early October was wonderful. Even during the summer, the trail winding thru the Pine forest should be shady and comfortable.
    Since we haven't had much rain this fall, the Seven Sacred pools were more like the Seven Fetid Pools. The Arches was a nice side trip.
