Sedona Hiking Trails
Below are my picks for our hiking trails in Sedona
EASY HIKE IN SEDONA
1) Long Canyon Trail
Long Canyon runs parallel with Boynton Canyon, offers similar scenery, and like Boynton, also contains many cliff dwellings. The biggest difference between the two is that the hiker won't run into nearly as many people hiking in Long Canyon. This hike is 2.9 miles with an elevation gain of about 500 feet. Allow 2-3 hours.
2) Boynton Canyon Trail
Boynton is a box canyon, so getting lost here is not an issue as long as the hiker stays on the main trail. It's also one of the most beautiful and popular trails in the area, with at least 50 cliff dwelling scattered among its ledges.
The hike all the way to the end is approximately 2.5 miles with an elevation gain of about 200 feet. Allow 2-4 hours.
3) Marg's Draw Trail
This is perhaps the most underrated hike in all of Sedona. It's especially good in the late afternoon when the west facing escarpment of the Mogollon Rim is light up by the long rays of the sun. Allow 1-2 hours.
MODERATE HIKE IN SEDONA
1) Brins Mesa
This hike is approximately 1.5 miles in length with an elevation gain of 500 feet. Once on top, the hiker can continue another .7 miles to a scenic over look, making the total roundtrip distance approximately 4.4 miles. Brins Mesa is still recovering from a large wildfire in 2006, but the views make this one of the finest trails in all Sedona. Allow 1-2 hours.
