Baldwin Trail Is An Easy Hike In Arizona That Takes You To An Unforgettable View

Located in the heart of the red rocks that characterize the area surrounding Sedona, the Baldwin Trail is somewhat of a secret. That’s because the name disguises the real reward of the moderate hike, which produces spectacular views of Cathedral Rock. Using the Baldwin Trail enables visitors to avoid some of the crowds that occupy the more conspicuously named Cathedral Rock Trail.
