Scheurman Mountain Hike

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 Sedona Hiking Guide which is available here.

Summary:  A short hike up the side of a mountain with wonderful views of Cathedral Rock

Challenge Level:  Moderate

Hiking Distance:  About 1 mile to the top, then another 1/4 mile to the overlook (2 1/2 round trip)

Trailhead Directions:  The parking area is located behind the Sedona High School.

Description:  Scheurman Mountain provides great views of Cathedral Rock and other red rock views. We made the hike in April when many wildflowers were blooming. When you get to the top of Scheurman Mountain, take the trail to the left for the view of Cathedral Rock. You can turn right at the top but there aren't as many good views this way.

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