Pyramid Hike

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 Sedona Hiking Guide which is available here.

Summary:  This hike takes you along the south side of the "great pyramid," which is visible from the end of the Tabletop Trail off the West side of the Airport Loop Trail.

Challenge Level:  Moderate

Hiking Distance:  About 2 1/4 miles round trip

Trailhead Directions:  The parking area is on the Upper Loop Road.

Description:  The trail is easy to follow but has loose rock and is steep in places, particularly about 1 mile into the hike. But the views are remarkable, although the view of Cathedral Rock would be better in the afternoon. You can hike a loop when you combine the Pyramid Trail with the Scorpion Trail.
