One of my favorite hikes in Sedona is the Soldier Pass Trail. Somehow longer than the other trails I did but it cover nice canyon, interesting arch cave structure, pass and a lot of view of Sedona mountains.
There are several attractions as you hike the loop, visit the large a sinkhole named Devil’s Kitchen, see the small Seven Sacred Pools, hike up the side cliff to Soldier Pass cave and enjoy the view from the pass and high section of the trail.
Overall, this loop is about 6.5 mile long with 1,500 ft elevation gain and considered Moderate.
I started my hike in a far parking lot so for me it was almost 9-mile hike and it took me almost 4 hours to hike it including climbing the cave and the far side of the pass loop.
