3.2 mile loop, moderately challenging with rocks
Hiker Review: “Best way to see all of the valley. Great trail. Lots of rocks but the views were amazing.”
An easy loop that gets even better with an optional climb to the summit of Little Sugarloaf for amazing views of Sedona.
Hiker Review: “A little too challenging for our little dogs but easy and so fun for us! The views were so beautiful for such little work! Would recommend for new hikers and people who want to see a variety of views with little time.”
Easy but relatively long walk up a low-elevation canyon containing permanent pools and red rock outcrops.
This is a beautiful trail that has a great straight ascent to begin the trail to a stunning vista point. You can continue on the High Desert Trail to another great vantage point if you want a longer trip.
Hiker Review: “Beautiful easy trail with stunning views and no people. Great for meditation and solitude.”
Three small valleys and a volcano await!
The Turkey Creek Trail #92 doesn't follow a creek, and there's no flowing water to be seen. However, it is a pleasant stroll through Red Rock Country's fringe to the flanks of a shield volcano to a fine panorama and intriguing geology.
13.2-mile out-and-back trail is generally considered a challenging route. The best times to visit this trail are October through April. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.
Hiker Review: “Beautiful hike, not a soul in sight, so quiet and peaceful!”
This is perhaps one of the most enjoyable mountain bike loops in West Sedona and links up many sweet and varied trails, all while showing off some of Sedona’s premier mountain biking terrain.
Hiker Review: “Wow! This was a great hike. Views everywhere, especially from the Aerie vista. I highly recommend this one."
Sedona enjoys some of the most scenic vistas in the country. Enjoy!
