Sedona, Arizona

Hike the Broken Arrow Trail to Chicken Point

3 Miles Total - 325 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Nick Tort

This quickie may just take the cake for combining ease of trail with classic Sedona beauty. It's loaded with spectacular red rock views of Battlement Mesa & Twin Buttes to the west and white/red rock views of Mund's Mountain Wilderness to the east. If you're going to do just one Sedona hike, this should be at the top of the list!

Start your hike at the Broken Arrow Trailhead, just .2 miles past the end of Morgan Rd. You will be immediately greeted by Sedona slickrock trails and red rock views for days! Take a minute to sneak a peek at Devil's Dining Room Sinkhole around 0.6 miles in. It has a sign and is just of to the right of the trail.

The trail continues coursing through some pristine Pinyon pine, juniper and cypress groves. Slick rock areas are scattered throughout the hike, adding to that vortex-feeding fulfillment that only comes from a Sedona escape hike. Signs posts and rock piled cairns make route-finding a breeze.

This is a very popular trail for mountain bikes and runs alongside an extremely popular pink jeep tour route. Often, you will be treated to the sights of watching jacked up jeeps finagle their way up and over and around and on top and through and.......

You can easily combine this trip alongside Submarine Rock or hike down Little Horse to add on some mileage and more epic eye candy goodness.

Take in the views at Chicken Point, snap a few photos, have a picnic, just do you. Stay for a sunset and soak it all in. When you're good to go, head back the way you came.

Beautiful Views

There is free parking at the general Broken Arrow parking lot near the trail. There are also many different trails that range in difficulty that connect to the Broken Arrow trail. There is High on the Hog as well as Hog Heaven and Twin Buttes. Great views, and very photographic scenery!

Stunning views and a relaxing run in the spring.
