Not only is it picturesque but the trail is maintained. Sedona has lots of trails, and all of them are unique and beautiful. The Vortex trails are awesome. So get your comfortable shoes on and hike these wonderful trails

Too much of this trail goes by the resort. It’s nice enough, but I prefer trails with a goal, like a great view, and though you can’t hike in Sedona without being in beauty, this trail just doesn’t do much for me.

This was my first time in the canyon, and the hike was gorgeous. The weather was perfect, and the trail was a beautiful mix of desert and forest. Would definitely recommend for hiking enthusiatics and non-hikers alike.

Very close to Enchantment Resort which is an absolute must after the trail. This whole area is less well travelled than the most of Sedona so is very special

This is a 6 mile round trail that is very popular with tourists. The parking lot is tiny but you can park on the street a little way down across the stop sign. You do need a “red rock pass” to use the lot but...More

Arguably unfair to post a review since we didn’t make it to the end, but still wanted to share about the experience. We wanted to hit this third hike, after doing Bell and Cathedral. The hike is quite pleasant and scenic, although seeing houses and...More

This trail lulls you into a sense of ease until the last 0.2 mile where you scramble almost straight up. The payoff? A beautiful view of the canyon, the sky and the forest - well worth it.

The Boynton Trail is a beautiful walk in Red Rock Country. The trail was a bit challenging for a 72 year old who is not into hiking. I was able to manipulate my way up the rocks to a wonderful spot the overlooked the Canyon....More

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.
