Hike to Robbers Roost
Arizona › Robbers Roost Trailhead
Added by Aaron Maltby
This short but sweet Arizona hike offers spectacular view of Sedona's red rock. You can camp out or just enjoy a nice picnic with a view!
The hike begins on the eastern side of the parking area. It is only a half mile hike but the views are amazing. Hike through the beautiful Sedona landscape of red rock and juniper before finding your way to this breathtaking cliff side view! Feel free to explore more of the mountain and find other ruins and viewpoints or just relax in a secluded cave with amazing views of Sedona's red rock.

Amazing Short Trails
This trail is mainly accessible by driving to the trailhead along a longer dirt road. It is well worth the views, and you will not be disappointed. Recently, I actually made it to the Roost and stayed overnight in the cave. Waking up to the Sunrise was a once in a lifetime view. The hike is short, but you can mess around taking in the views all over the rock, and I suggest checking out many different views!
