Trail Description
About this trail
There is an upper and lower Chimney Rock Trail. Tie them both together
and you have a short and painless 3.16 mile figure eight loop. The Upper
Chimney Rock Trail is 1.79 miles around the loop, and the lower Chimney
Rock Trail (loop) is 1.39 miles.

The map indicates that the upper loop crosses wilderness, which, of course,
means you can’t bike it. There are no visible signs alerting you to this fact
along the trail, however. Recommendation: Leave your bike at the
Trailhead and make this into a nice hike. That way you don’t have to
wonder about the wilderness area question, and you can take either of two
side spurs that lead you to nice overlooks at the top of two different hills.

Review: Amazing trail....if you're hiking. Definitely NOT a mountain bike trail. It climbs with huge rocky steps that even Danny Macaskill couldn't navigate. I would highly recommend leaving the bikes behind, hike the trail, enjoy the views, then go ride long canyon or the 2 dozen other mountain bike tailored trails Sedona has to offer.

Review: Sedona has some awesome sunsets. People like to watch them from Airport Mesa, which makes it crowded and hard to find parking. Outsmart the crowds and hike to the summit off the lower Chimney Rock Loop for great views. This figure-eight will roll by really fast if you're biking. Hardly worth unloading your bike unless you'r also heading down Thunder Mountain Trail. Take a nice hike.
