However, This is not a climb for children.The climb is sooo worth it. I did this climb with my daughter to the top. The views are incredible. I liked that there were frequently places to stop and take in the view and rest. the climb down was very easy.

A must see when you are in the Sedona area. We have spent the past 4 days looking at the wonderful rock formations and find each better than the last.

My husband's favorite of all the Sedona hikes we did. This is more of a climb than a hike but the elevation rise is amazing. We didn't go all the way but decided to stop at a really narrow and somewhat loose rock path. I have to admit I had a little anxiety sitting up there and realizing I had... More

The views and scenery are awesome. Plenty of trails to get up close and personal. Or just a different view. We loved visiting here

Came to Sedona for President's Weekend and went on three hikes today (Bell's Rock and Devil's Bridge) but this one is the BEST. Even with it raining! It is a climb to the top and you will sort of crabwalk some parts on the way down, but insanely invigorating. Top to bottom this is a HIKE... not a calm path... More

Loved this walk! Templeton Trail spins off to the left from Cathedral Rock and we liked Templeton Trail the best.

So worth it! The hike up is a challenge if you move quickly. Take your time and it is very enjoyable. Doesn't take too long at all. The view is amazing! Especially at sunset!

This was our second time at Cathedral. Our first time, we took Templeton trail to Oak Creek, which is awesome. This time, we did a little of everything, and with our two five year old twin boys. We were originally reluctant to take them because there are some steep "cliffs" along the Templeton trail to Oak Creek. But they are... More

It is quite a climb to the top. Many people of all different ages were able to make it, but it is strenuous and quite slippery when wet!
