NOTE: The following summary information is to help with hike selection and is not intended to be used for hiking the trail. For your safety and enjoyment, please obtain a copy of Great Sedona Hikes hiking guide available HERE.
Summary: An easy to moderate hike to a large named rock formation with panoramic views all around
Challenge Level: Easy to Moderate
Hiking Distance: About 3 miles to Submarine Rock and return
Trailhead Location: The parking area is located off of Morgan Road.
Description: Submarine Rock is a very large formation in the shape of a nuclear submarine. The shortest hike to Submarine Rock is by hiking the Broken Arrow Trail and then turning to Submarine Rock. Along the way to the turn, you'll pass the Devil's Dining Room (a large sinkhole surrounded by a fence). After the turn to Submarine Rock, you'll come to an area with some very colorful stones along the trail. You'll come to a Jeep Road in about another 1/2 mile. You can get to Submarine Rock by either continuing on the trail by crossing the Jeep Road, or by turning right and following the Jeep Road to the south end of Submarine Rock. From here you may want to hike over to Chicken Point, which will add another mile to the hike (see Broken Arrow Hike).
For those of you who have a GPS unit, I have GPS data available for the hike which include "tracks," the route and waypoints.
