Little Horse to Broken Arrow

NOTE: The following summary information is to help with hike selection and is not intended to be used for hiking the trail. For your safety and enjoyment, please obtain a copy of Great Sedona Hikes hiking guide available HERE.

Summary:  A wonderful hike passing Chicken Point

Challenge Level:  Moderate

Hiking Distance:   About 2 miles each way to Chicken Point (4 miles round trip); 4 miles one way to the north end of the Broken Arrow Trail

Trailhead Location:  The parking area is located on SR 179, south of Sedona.

Description:  You start by hiking along the Bell Rock Pathway Trail heading south. At 0.3 miles you'll turn left on the Little Horse Trail. We did this 4 mile one way hike as a two car hike, parking one car at the Broken Arrow Trail Head off of Morgan Road and parking the other at the Little Horse Trailhead noted above. Excellent red rock views as you hike past Chicken Point, Submarine Rock and the Devil's Dining Room. At Chicken Point and Submarine Rock you'll likely encounter some Pink Jeeps as these are stops on their Broken Arrow Tour. There isn't much shade on this hike so if you hike in the Summer, take extra water.

In February 2008, we hiked the Little Horse Trail to Chicken Point, a hike of about 2 miles each way. Here are photos taken by Julia Iveson.

For those of you who have a GPS unit, I have GPS data available for the hike which include "tracks," the route and waypoints.
