Overview

There is an old saying, "God created the Grand Canyon, but he lives in Sedona." The Sedona region is home to extraordinary red rock formations, natural arches, majestic pinnacles, cliffs, gorges, sculpted canyons, mesas with panoramic views, ancient Indian ruins, plus year-round creeks and swimming holes.

Sedona offers an abundance of outdoor activities, and hiking is one of the most popular. Day Hikes Around Sedona is a comprehensive guide to the extensive network of trails throughout this beautiful area. These one hundred hikes include trails to all the best-known rock formations, as well as secluded trails that travel down remote canyons, across vast plateaus, or lead to archeological sites. Oak Creek gently cascades through town, leaving a corridor of lush vegetation that contrasts with the eroded red rock landscape. Interconnected valleys, canyons, and mesas offer abundant opportunities for hiking and exploration.

A range of difficulty levels and scenery is included. All hikes can be completed during the day. Map sources and references are listed for extending the hikes.

Each hike includes:
Detailed maps
Accurate driving and hiking directions
Distance, time, and elevation statistics
Summaries to help hikers find a trail appropriate to their ability and desire
Several overall maps to show the hikes in the greater area

Read an Excerpt

Hike 69: Boynton Canyon is an awesome canyon that is rich with red rock buttes, hoodoo rock spires, and jagged red formations on the 1,000-foot-high vertical sandstone and limestone cliffs. It is considered to be an electromagnetic vortex site, drawing energies from deep within the earth. In addition to the truly spectacular scenery are ancient Sinagua Indian cliff dwellings, which retain special significance to the Yavapai/Apache Indians. The trail follows the sheer east wall of the canyon, skirting the edge of Enchantment Resort. Beyond the resort, the path drops down to the forested canyon floor and winds through ponderosa pine and Douglas fir to the back of the box canyon. (followed by driving and hiking directions, map)
