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 pleasant hike in a shaded canyon with red rock views at the end
Challenge Level: Moderate
Hiking Distance: About 3 miles round trip (in and out)
Trailhead Location: Park at the Midgley Bridge.
Description: At first the trail is wide but narrows further on. At about ˝ mile you’ll intersect the end of the Jim Thompson Trail. The trail crosses the bottom of the canyon about a dozen times as it winds in about 1.4 miles. And the red rock views are near the end of the hike because there are Arizona cypress blocking many of the views before that. The shade makes this a good choice for a summer hike.

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