Area: Sedona/Verde Valley, Arizona
A local favorite, but it is the least known Sedona trail for three reasons:
1. It is the furthest from town of the “Sedona” trails.
2. No red rocks on the trail, but great views of the red rocks.3. It beats the snot out of you for the last mile to the top.
If you are still reading, you either need professional help OR you are looking for that little-known, out-of-the-way trail that knocks your socks off, and this is it! For all of its warts (as listed above), it is a fun, moderately adventurous trail, with breathtakingly spectacular views. And you are not likely to be sharing those views with very many other people.Open year-round, though not recommended in wet winter conditions.
