Tie the laces on your hiking shoes, head on over to Sedona, Arizona and grab Greg Stevenson’s trail guide. You are in for one of the world’s most spectacular trekking experiences.
Greg’s book describes 30 of the best trails in the area and Sue and I used it to find two eight-mile loops around red-rock wonders like the Courthouse, above. He includes the basics for a variety of paths and we found it the perfect companion for the Sedona Trails Map by Emmitt Barks Cartography. We discovered both in Greg’s Hike House outdoor store in Sedona.
I know how much work goes into writing a book and am grateful that Greg’s efforts will be our guide for several more adventures!

Any other Recommendations for Sedona must do activities besides hiking? I’m taking my parents there in the fall. My mom is a very talented amateur photographer and we want to find some great photo ops for her. 😊
Sure, although the hiking is what is keeping us here for three weeks. Here are a few things we enjoyed: Montezuma Castle National Monument, the Montezuma well and the petroglyphs at V Bar V Ranch…these are close together and can be done in a day. V Bar V is open Fridays through Mondays only.
Then the historic towns of Jerome, Cottonwood, and Clarkdale…all linked by copper mining. Jerome is on a spectacular mountainside, Cottonwood is charming, with great eating, and Clarkdale has a fascinating copper museum(really!) and a popular train ride. Also, Dead Horse Ranch State Park near there has fishing, picnicking and walking trails. Tuzigoot National Monument is also near Cottonwood and we loved the Native American ruins there.
And then the red-rock hiking. We can’t get enough of that! You can see my wife’s posts at carryoncouple.com
Best wishes for a great trip! Let me know if you have more questions.

Wow! Great recommendations! I’ll be checking these out. My mom and dad are healthier and in better shape than I am and they love hiking! I’m sure we’ll be doing some of the trails! I just hope I can keep up with them!
