Templeton Trail is located near Sedona off of Highway 179. This recently developed trail has Cathedral Rock as it's centerpiece. This trail is very scenic, but mostly un-shaded and can be very hot in summer

The Templeton Trail begins off the Bell Rock Pathway just north of Bell Rock, goes under Route 179 through a tunnel and heads northwest. It intersects the H.T. Trail at 1 mile. (New as of 4/20/2007: there is a new alignment for the Templeton Trail. A new box culvert has been installed to take the trail under the new road construction. Also, cairns have been installed to help people find their way. Go through the box culvert - it even has the trail name on it!)Note: Check with the Red Rock Ranger District for current conditions and trail accessibilty.

Directions: From Bell Rock Pathway 1/3 miles north of Bell Rock, To get to Bell Rock Pathway from the South Gateway Visitor Center, go 1 mile north to Bell Rock parking area on your right.
