One of the most popular hikes in Sedona is Cathedral Rock but I’d opt for the entire loop, instead of just the down and back lookout point. The loop is 8 miles but it took us closer to 9 miles, with the detour. We actually chose to do the loop backwards, getting to Cathedral Rock at the beginning rather than the end of the trail. We opted for this way because although it's seemingly more uphill, we decided we'd rather go up rocks, than down them. This was simply our personal decision, either way, you're guaranteed a great hike! This loop was way less trafficked than Boynton Canyon, minus when you intersect with people going up to Cathedral Rock. When you cross over that trial though, I highly recommend you join the crowds and check out the viewpoint. It’s a short yet steep detour. What’s so fantastic about this hike is that you have incredible views the entire 9 miles. There’s a small wooded area that traverses next to a river but otherwise, it’s desert views as far as the eye can see. It’s really something special! Picture by me, Kat Smith.
