    Entered trail at the end of Verde Valley School road. Hiking near the creek is cooler and there is shade along the early part of the trail. There is much more sun on the second half of the trail to Cathedral Rock and the climb is fairly gradual and not overly strenuous until reaching Cathedral Rock. The views were fantastic along all parts of trail and especially approaching CR. It was a good hike for us first time out. Rarin’ to go hiking again!

    Hi Mike! Thank you for sending me on this beautiful hike! I travelled alone and you assured me I would be safe on this trail. There were so many families and a very wide open view. I felt completely safe. It’s a great work out, beautiful views and only about 45 minutes to the top. I definitely recommend this hike. Thank you Mike for being so helpful and for creating this amazing hiking service. Angela

    This hike was exactly what we needed we are beginners that wanted to see some views and have some small elevation changes we veered off and went to the creek as the climb up the rock face seemed too hard for a couple of newbies. We really enjoyed the views and would try it again next time out
    Thanks for making the suggestion

    Great hike, short, easy and very rewarding,
    i hiked early morning and experienced the sunrise which was magnificent, the best part is when you get to the saddle and you suddenly see the views of oak creek.
    highly recommended trail, don’t forget to explore also the spears and do your self a favor and just sit there for 30 min…this place is literally works likes a body and spirit re-charger :-)

    Incredible views at the top of the rock! The trail has a lot of climbing and it was a lot of fun. Totally worth it
