Hike or Bike the Hiline Trail in Sedona

8 miles 480 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Ross Kyker

Can be an easy short or a moderate long hike that leads to multiple breathtaking views of Sedona. Basically walk as little or as much as you'd like and be rewarded the entire time.

Start this incredible hike by parking at the Yavapai Point parking lot. Start the short hike (0.13 miles) on the Kaibab Trail which will run into Yavapai Vista Trail (0.27 miles) towards the Slim Shady Trail. Here you will have an incredible view of Bell Rock and Courthouse Vista an excellent place for taking sunset and sunrise photos! Some looking for a quick hike with great views will call it quits here, if you feel more adventurous then continue on below!

For the more adventurous take the Hiline Trail for a one way 3.5 mile hike and 480 ft elevation gain to the Baldwin Trail. If you make it all the way to Baldwin Trail this is a great place to turn around and head back because its about 4 miles back to the parking area. Along this hike you'll have views of Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, Lee Mountain, Rabbit Ears and Cathedral Rock. This trail is also a photographer's dream with many panoramic views along the way!

Great Views & Relaxing Hike

Great hike with amazing views all the way up! As you hike up you'll have a great view of the red Rock formations on the opposite side. I think the tourists hike the actual formations on the other side, so this trail was not busy (I saw 4 other people on my way up/down). I went mid-Sept so it was still hot out! Bring water! I enjoy the heat so it was not an issue for me - I also wanted to come during the less busy times. Really enjoyed this trail and will be back!
