An amazing hike. The views are incredible and hiking to the top of the mountain gives you views of the San Francisco Peaks. I took roughly 200 pics. Not a hike for the faint of heart. Elevation change is substantial. This is a must hike in AZ. Went up Friday night and stayed at the Wildflower Inn in Sedona for $60 (king w/fireplace). Free continental brkfst then off to trailhead at sunrise.
