Chimney Rock One of our favorites. Loop hike that brings you up to the base of Chimney Rock with great views across Sedona.
Cibola Pass A great loop hike that brings you to the Devil’s Kitchen and the Seven Sacred Pools. Great scenery the whole way.
Fay Canyon This is a great hike for a hot day. This has more shade. This is an out and back hike. Make sure to take the side path that leads to an arch.
Scheurman Mountain A short hike located just behind the school. Perfect for a sunset hike.
Slate Mountain– Follow the link to our blog about this hike. This mountain is located above Flagstaff, AZ. This 4.4 mile out and back hike brings you up a little over 800 feet. The location is perfect for views of the San Francisco peaks. We timed our visit just right before any major snow fell. GPS Route
Thumb Butte This is a great little hike located in Prescott, AZ. We hiked to just below the summit. The climb to the very top is quite a scramble. This hike was less than 2.5 miles (including the side path to the base of the summit) and over 700 feet of elevation. We did this as a loop hike in a counter-clockwise direction. We hiked down the steep section that is paved.
Vulture Peak – Follow the link to our blog about this hike. This is a hike to a saddle of a prominent peak near Wickenburg. The hike starts at BLM land on the Vulture Mine Road. If you have a 4-wheeler or high clearance vehicle you can drive the ATV route up to the upper parking lot, decreasing the hike from 2 miles each way down to about .5-.7 miles each way. We got a little side tracked on the way in and way out finding the “hiking trail” vs. the ATV trail but it didn’t seem to add on a lot of mileage. The hiking trail seems to be more scenic, bringing you through a big stand of Saguaro. GPS routePhotos of Vulture Peak hike
West Fork Trail- We hiked about 8 miles out and back with over 1600 feet of elevation. This Sedona hike is not your typical red rock hike- it is a forested hike with MANY stream crossings. There is an additional $10 fee to park here, even if you have a National Park Pass. GPS Route
