Soldier Pass Professional Review and Guide
"If you are looking for a great drive but don’t have much time, try this short route. The red rock beauty of the area is quite stunning and includes two interesting features: the stair-stepped Seven Apache Pools and the unusual Devil’s Kitchen. Challenges are exciting without being overwhelming. If you’ve been itching to try a difficult trail, this may be your best opportunity.
The trail is on the edge of Sedona immediately adjacent to a beautiful residential area. It’s also a very popular hiking area, so drive slowly and don’t spin your tires. In short, be a good neighbor. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you’ll need a Red Rocks Pass. Many steep, rocky steps; however, articulation demands are minimal. Many stock high-clearance vehicles can make it."
