We went up to the Chicken point which took us about 3 hours round trip. Here again Parking is a problem, but we were lucky to get a spot. Other reviews were spot on. The trail is very gradual and very beautiful.

Some minor inclines, beautiful scenery, parts near highway, but still quiet. Parking was full (about noon), but lucked out by catching someone leaving. Good distant views of Courthouse Butte and Bell Rock. Be courteous of people on bikes.

This is a nice hike at the foot of some of the Sedona buttes. It offers several different routes (as do most Sedona trails), none of which are especially challenging. It would rate as a moderate hike by most standards, with nice views.

Went on this trail with 13 ladies & a guide. Nice length, great views and vista, not hard - just a bit of gradual climbing.

It wasn't too crowded and there was lots of beautiful views all along, plus interesting plants and trees. I would call this an easy to moderate hike.

If you only have time for one hike....don’t miss this one. You experience the full essence of Sedona’s Red Rocks. Well marked trail that ends at Chicken Point, a lovely vista of many prominent rocks.

I think this trail is underrated. Broken Arrow gets all the attention but this trail is just as good i believe. Excellent distant views of Cathedral and Bell rock. Helps to get to the trailhead early to avoid crowds. Takes you to Chicken Point, same...More

Another beautiful trail though the second half is prettier and more interesting than the first half. Elevation gain is moderate and gradual. When we got to the end we had to search a bit to find the way up onto the rock at Chicken Point....More

This is not an easy hike. There are many ups and downs so you have to be careful especially on the way back. Very scenic views of the red rocks. If you go all the way to Chicken Point and climb the rocks you can...More

I went here on Christmas day with my mom, and I was disappointed with this trail. The first part of the trail is really flat, and we didn't make it too far (25 mins) so we didn't see too much. I think doing a more...More

Took me 45 minutes to get to chicken point. But I could've done it faster or slower. The guide book says to allow for two hours round-trip.

There are signs along the highway that let you know where it is located. I believe the signs say "Little Horse Trailhead," if memory serves me correctly... but if you are staying within Sedona and drive out of town on 179... More
