Doe Mountain Parking Area - Search Nearby - Added by Nathan Szwarc

Only 20 minutes from downtown Sedona.A relatively easy, family friendly hike that leads to spectacular views of the Sedona. 

The trail begins almost immediately with some gradual switchbacks that climb up the mesa at a moderate incline. As you climb you will come to a trail junction with the Aerie trail about .3 in. At this junction just make sure to stay on the trail marked towards Doe Mountain and not on the Aerie trail. The trail continues to climb up gradual switchbacks basically all the way to the top. The very last section of the trail right before you reach the top is a bit steep and rocky so make sure to take it easy if needed. Overall however, the climb up is easy to moderate and very easy to follow. Once you have reached the top feel free to walk around the mesa on the  variety of trail junctions that will lead to cliffs that will give you great unobstructed views of the beautiful Red Rock Country. This trail would best be done during the early morning or around dusk for the best lighting as well as cooler temperatures in the summer.

Killer Sunset Spot

The views here are some of the best in Sedona and line up perfectly for catching last light on the surrounding formations.
