Guided Hikes and Land Journeys

If there is only one thing you HAVE to do while you are visiting Sedona, it's take a hike!!!

Sedona is known to many as the most beautiful place in America. There is even an old saying, "God created the Grand Canyon, but He lives in Sedona." But to really experience the splendor of Sedona, you have to get out of the jeep, put you feet on the ground and start walking!!

But where do you go with almost 3 million acres of national forest, over 300 miles of marked trails and seven major canyons? You could literally explore this land for a lifetime and not see it all. You could choose to go where many people visit: Cathedral Rock, The Chapel, Airport Mesa...the list goes on.

But, we encourage you to get off the beaten path and experience other amazing vistas, ancient ruins, seclusive swimming holes, deep canyons, sacred ceremonial sites and so much more!!!

Our guided hikes are unique, usually cost half of what other guides charge and come with exclusive services not yet offered anyplace else.

We offer professional photography complete with memorable keepsakes, "brown bag brunch" specials that include great local foods and the option to weave in simple ceremony. It's all up to you. Just let us know how much time you have, what you'd like to see and experience and we will customize a guided tour around you and your interests.

We will guide you to places in Sedona that are meant to rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. Make this vacation more than just a "get-away." Use your time in Sedona to become inspired about life in a way that only nature can. We call them "Kodak moments of the Soul."

Find out why and book a once-in-a-lifetime experience today. We promise, you will enjoy yourself, unlike ever before!!

 

Hike Sedona ~ Airport Loop Trail

Sedona Vortex Hike with Amazing Views of Sedona

Hike Sedona ~ Airport Loop Trail

Trail Description

This trail winds around Airport Mesa and starts at a popular vortex location. There is a beautiful knoll just above the parking lot which is a great place to start.

The actual trail is a loop around the entire mesa with great views that give you many different perspectives as you travel around the mesa.

The trail starts at the southeast face of the mesa. The parking lot is 1/2 mile up Airport Road from 89A. From the parking lot you walk up towards the knoll keeping to the right. You will find a trail that hugs the mesa looping around the entire mesa for approximately 3.6 miles.

This trail gives you incredible views of Oak Creek and Bell Rock at the beginning. Further around the mesa you will see Mingus Mountain approximately 1/2 way around (1.6 miles). At this point you will be at Table Top Trail junction. This is a great place to take a bit of a detour out approximately 1/2 mile to take in some views, rehydrate and eat a snack.

Continuing back to Airport loop trail you can complete the second half of the loop. You will soon see Cockscomb, Chimney Rock and Thunder Mountain (the highest formation in Sedona city limits).

The last part of the trail loops close to a residential area, but you are on the home stretch. The trail ends at a guard rail almost directly across the street from the parking lot.
