Here is how I know this is a great trail: A young man in love one day comes into the store and asks where would be a great place to propose to his girlfriend. I told him of this trail down by Oak Creek. He took his girlfriend to this place and she said “YES!” So that means this is a great trail. Cathedral/Templeton Trail is a romantic adventure. The majesty of Cathedral coupled with the beauty of Oak Creek and the cool canopied forest leading down to the creek make this a great hike for couples in love and families looking for a moderate adventure where the kids can jump around in the water. This is my wife’s favorite hike in the area and it embodies everything that is great in Sedona.
