Cathedral Rock Trail is a short 0.7 mile but strenuous trail which quickly rises 608 feet in elevation. The midsection of the trail has a near vertical segment which requires climbing. The trail is well marked and many hikers can be found using the trail. The trail traverses the east side of the mountain and thus the hike is better taken in the afternoon so one is hiking in the shade. On the top, there is a narrow plateau with steep slopes on each side. The width is about that of a wide sidewalk and several stones are perfect for sitting. One can enjoy the view if not afraid of the heights.

The hike ends at the northern saddle between the middle and northern spire.

Cathedral Rock is a short hike that offers beautiful views of the naturally occurring red rock formations in the heart of red rock country. This is a favorite hike in the Sedona area.

The Cathedral Rock trailhead can be accessed off of Back’O’Beyond Road. There is a small trailhead parking area. However, the trail can also be accessed from Baldwin and Templeton trails.

The trail ends with a short steep climb to Cathedral Rock. There are some steep sections so hiking shoes are recommended. There are great views along the entirety of the trail.
