My wife and I went on this hike on our anniversary and had a great time. It is very easy, and the weather this time of year in Sedona was beautiful. We had so much fun on the trail that we actually passed the arch at the end, so make sure you are looking up or you might walk right by it too!

This hike is a great challenge that is extremely rewarding when you get to the top. My wife and I kept a slow and steady pace and enjoyed every minute of it. At the end you have spectacular views of the valley, plus it is probably one of the closest hikes you can take and still feel like you are escaping the city. ENJOY!!!

Great Day for a Hike, and it was beautiful this time of year, not too hot not too cold and because of the rain that we had the creek was flowing well. Had a hard time finding the bat caves.

A good quick hike, comparable to camelback. I personally prefer to get out of the city, and this is located right in the middle of the city. But if you need to go for a hike but don't have the time to drive far away this will suffice.

This was my first time hiking Camelback and to be honest I was pleasantly suprised to see that it was a decent challenge. Throughout the hike you are surrounded with beautiful views of the valley, the only downside to this hike is that because you are surrounded by the city you can still hear all the noises of the city such as construction, car horns etc. If you are looking for a quick work out hike that provides amazing city views this is your hike, but if you are looking to escape from the city you should look elsewhere.
