Description

Chimney Rock is another easily recognized Sedona landmark and can be seen from nearly everywhere in town. This is the squared-off Castleton Spire looking rock that sticks up like a sore thumb off the ridgeline in the western part of Sedona. As you get closer, you will see that it is not even one formation, but two fin-like towers of squat rock. There are a a few established routes here, mostly in the hardman part of the spectrum, but the original line is cool.

Getting There

Parking for the approach to Chimney Rock is accessed off highway 89A in west Sedona. Continue west past Coffee Pot Rock to Andante Road, turn north on Andante and follow it to the trailhead parking. Hoof up the hill to Chimney Rock on the trail. Takes about 15-20 minutes. The route is obvious from the approach, the big slot facing you on the way up.
