We did the Devil's bridge hike in the am and were looking for a shorter hike to do in the afternoon- and this hike was recommended by an employee at the Hike House. We circled the parking lot twice, but found a spot and set off. I had absolutely no expectations on this hike- and as you near the end... More

The Little Horse trail head is a few miles south of Sedona on 179 near Back O Beyond rd. There is parking at the trail head, but it fills up during busy times. There is a pit toilet by the trail head, and a machine to purchase a trail pass. The trail is well marked and not too difficult. It... More

Little Horse Trail is a location you can bring your horse to trail ride up to the red rocks. We stopped and walked part of the trail and were afforded stunning views and photo opportunities. You will need to purchase the $5 red rock pass that allows you access to the various scenic overlooks on thevRed Rick Scenic Drive.

We did a very nice loop on this trail, or at least parts of it. We combined all the trails around to make this something that would give us views, climbing opps and miles. We got there at 9AM so parking no matter, tho 1/2 hour later it would have been. We enjoyed the trail, the views and the quiet.

First of all, I would like to say that there really is not enough parking provided for the hikers, walkers or mountain bikers. They have several access sites to the various hikes in the area, but the parking lots are less than required. For such popular areas, and beautiful I might add, they should expand the parking. This trail is... More

Little Horse follows the base of a mesa for a few miles out to Chicken Rock. The trail is well-maintained and moderate in difficulty. There are quite a few bikes on the trail, but all the bikers were very courteous the day we hiked it. At Chicken Rock, the Pink Jeeps come in from a 4WD road - and the... More

The reds of the red rock on this trail are so rich and plentiful. There's also a plethora of greenery. Very nice mix. 4 miles total and fairly flat. I was there at sunset and it was drop dead gorgeous.
