Soldier Pass Arches, Devil's Kitchen and Seven Sacred Pools

Soldier Pass Arches, Devil's Kitchen and Seven Sacred Pools Professional Review and Guide

"This hike features three separate and unique natural features. First is Devil's Kitchen, a hundred-foot deep active sinkhole, the largest in Sedona. Second is Seven Sacred Pools, a series of descending creek bed pools naturally carved in the slickrock.

Third are the Soldier Pass Arches, three large, red rock arch sculptures. Along the forested trail are views of Coffee Pot Rock and the Three Indians formation to the west."

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.

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.

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.
