Great moderate trail that provides a unique view of Munds Wilderness and Cathedral Rock. Just when you thought you had seen all of Cathedral, this trail provides a unique view from the southeast side of this structure.
This trail starts out across the street from Bell Rock at a trailhead named Yavapai Vista. Finding Hi Line can be a little confusing since there are a series of short trails that are intertwined before you reach the trail. Regardless of which short trail you take, they all lead to Slim Shady Trail. Once you intersect Slim Shady head to the left and after a short distance you will see sign for Hi Line.
As you head up Hi Line Trail, you ascend halfway up the ridgeline before the trail flattens out. Once flat you will be hiking a 4-6 wide shelf…really cool. As you follow the shape of this unique ridge (Seven Warriors) you are graced with the wide open views of Sedona and Munds Wilderness. As you turn the corner halfway down the trail you will experience your first views of Cathedral—not sure seeing Cathedral can ever become commonplace.
Hi Line Trail continues past Cathedral and provides you with the opportunity to connect to Baldwin Trail, Templeton and Slim Shady for a 8.2 mile loop hike. For those willing to hike the 8.2 loop hike you are treated to beautiful section of trail along Oak Creek.
