Extended Adventure: If you’re looking for a longer hike, the Pyramid-Scorpion Loop connects to the Scheurmann Mountain Trail and Trailhead.

If you want to continue exploring after your hike, head to Secret Slickrock Trailhead where you can hike down to Buddha Beach and Oak Creek for a chilly swim! Or, take the short trail to Secret Slickrock for yet another incredible view of Cathedral Rock and Oak Creek.

Staying with us?

The trailhead is a short drive from our vacation rentals. Only 8 minutes from Hummingbird Crossing and 22 minutes from Casa Coconino, making this an easy option for hikers staying at our properties.

Come prepared:

Remember to bring water, sun protection, and suitable hiking gear. As the Scorpion Trail is rugged, wear sturdy shoes. A headlamp or flashlight is vital for early morning or late afternoon excursions.

Bringing Furry Friends:

The Pyramid-Scorpion Loop Hike is dog friendly, offering an ideal, crowd free opportunity to hike with your four-legged companion. Ensure that your pup is in good shape for the challenging terrain and bring extra water.
