Possibly Sedona’s most famous location, for good reason.  It offers stunning elevated views in all directions, with jaw-dropping vistas available from the saddle at the top. It does require a rather strenuous hike and is only recommended for those seeking a true adventure elopement.

It’s almost always extremely busy, with heavy tourist traffic. The trailhead parking lot is often closed due the lot being full, which then requires taking a shuttle from Courthouse Vista to the Cathedral Rock Trailhead parking lot, a distance of about 3.5 miles.
