A nice fairly easy hike that is partly shaded. It is 6 miles out and back and has some nice canyon views. We usually stop at the Enchantment Resort for lunch after this hike. It is a private resort, but open for lunch visitors and...More

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
