This was one of the places I really wanted to visit during our stay in Sedona. So, this was the first place we ventured, and it was a great start to the day. We went around 10 am or so, and it really wasn't that hard to find. We counted roundabouts and the signage was sufficient to keep us on the right path. When we got there, not knowing about the parking situation, we took the first available parking spot we could find. It was at the base of the hill, so we actually had a walk up the hill. As we found out, there is a larger, paved parking lot if you keep driving up the hill, and that would have been much easier. If you have folks in your party who have difficulty walking, definitely park in the larger lot, and I think they even had nice folks with golf carts who could shuttle folks who need a lift up to the actual chapel. It's by no means difficult to access this site, but, just wanted to share that there can be some walking involved. As you walk up to the chapel, there are numerous photo opps of the rock formations in the background. And, once you get up to the top, there are also really pretty views to be enjoyed and photographed. It's also neat to spot the super fancy house at the bottom of the hill. We went into the chapel and sat for awhile. The glass windows behind the altar are lovely. Be sure to also check out the very well-stocked gift shop downstairs. Access to the gift shop is from the inside of the church. I very much recommend a visit to the Chapel of the Holy Cross. It's a beautiful place, carved into the butte, and brought out the spirituality inspired by the beauty of the terrain.
