Sedona Hiking

Lace up your hiking boots, grab your poles and slap on some sunscreen. The hiking trails of Sedona are calling to you.

The city is a gateway to some of Arizona's most spectacular scenery, which is more colorful than you might think. Picture burnt red rocks, bright blue sky, and green shrubs clinging to the edges of cliff faces. Exploring on foot is one of the best ways to see these stunning landscapes.

And the best part? There are hiking trails for everyone. Yes, that means you.

Hardcore trekking enthusiasts can join epic trails that wind for miles through the Coconino National Forest. The more difficult trails can involve steep climbs, but they lead to spectacular views.

If you want a more gentle option, head to Sedona's Visitor Center for information on easier local trails. You can wander along the edges of shaded rivers or make your way to fascinating archaeological sites.

We've highlighted three of the most popular locations for hiking in the Sedona area.

Hike in Sedona's Slide Rock State Park

  • Stroll through a historic orchard located in a scenic canyon area. The 43-acre farm still hosts a collection of historic cabins.
  • The park is named after a naturally formed water flume, carved out of the rocks by a river. Cool off by slipping and sliding down the unusual rock feature.
  • Join one of the hiking trails here, which are accessible even if you're less experienced.

Hiking Grand Canyon National Park

  • One of America's most iconic landscapes is just over 100 miles away from Sedona's city center and promises miles of hiking trails.
  • Take plenty of water for your trip down into the canyon as it gets hotter the lower you go - but the path down has some of the best views.
  • There's never been a better excuse to buy some binoculars. Mountain lions, condors, coyotes and elks call this legendary landscape home.
