Little Horse Trail and Bell Rock Pathway Northern Trailhead
Situated atop a hill, this trailhead is an opportunity to gaze west at Cathedral Rock, one of the most photographed places in Arizona. Late in the day or early in the morning, this majestic view can be inspirational. Look east for an excellent view of the "Three Nuns," a series of red spires just above the Chapel of the Holy Cross. Many hiking trails branch off from here (like "Little Horse") and will take you through hidden washes, pools and breathtaking vistas.
