This was an easy hike and so cool as a man was up on top playing his flute! He also handed us heart shaped red rocks when he was finished.

I’ve been to Sedona 4-5 times now and after trying many of the local hikes, I have to say that this is the one unmissable one. You’ll need good shoes with tread on them, a quart of water, some snacks, a hat with a brim,...More

The views are amazing the landscape so very Sedona and the Vortex do not disappoint. Try to get some information on some of the wildlife, plants and history to have more depth in your hike.

Be sure and carry sun screen and extra water. This is a wonderful trail to adventure and explore on. Free to all. We allowed 3 hours to do the trail at an easy pace.

If you go there during a national holiday, there is no fee to park. The same is true for any national park. However, the airport mesa parking fee will still be $3.00 no matter what day you go.
