Favorite Hike I did while in Sedona/Flagstaff area

I went up to Flagstaff from Sedona because the temps were 100+ the week I was there. Flagstaff tends to be about 10-12 degrees cooler. Looked online and found Red Mountain was a... read more

I went up to Flagstaff from Sedona because the temps were 100+ the week I was there. Flagstaff tends to be about 10-12 degrees cooler. Looked online and found Red Mountain was a favorite of many local hikers. I gave it a whirl. I got there at 8 am, before anyone else was hiiking, it was great, about 30 miles... More

This is an pretty easy hike (maybe 30-40 minutes) to the inside of a blown out cinder cone. It is very scenic with lots of cool shapes cause by erosion. Well worth a couple of hours, but bring water!

Amazing rock formations at the end of the trail. The path was easy to follow with not too much elevation gain.

It is a mile and a half walk each way on flat terrain. It's an old crescent moon shaped volcano that you can enter (from the lower side). Black lava silt on some of the slopes right as you approach the last stretch to the entrance. From the parking lot it goes exclusively from cypress trees to ponderosa pines, even... More

The whole north side of this small mountain has eroded away, exposing marvelous erosive features and a grand cross section of a cinder cone volcano. The hike is a couple miles of easy trail, and the reward at the end is well worth it--much more interesting and beautiful than you thought it would be.

Really enjoyed this trail and the transitions to different vistas. It was really short and easy to do for my daughter, brother and I.

This is always a fun walk if you're willing to drive out there. It is almost always quiet when we go out there. The kids love climbing on the cinder piles and sliding down. They also love climbing all over the rocks back in the canyon. We always have a fun time exploring out there with the kiddos (7& 8).... More

visited here for the pumpkin patch. Mm.. The hay ride was what made it worth it. More for very small children.

This hike is unlike anything I've ever seen. To walk into a collapsed volcano is a very unique experience. It's a pretty easy hike, there is one small ladder that needs to be climbed, but it's open & flat for the most part. The inside of the volcano is fun to boulder through & if you boulder to the top,... More

I'm an avid hiker in the Pacific NW, so maybe I expect too much of trails. The hike had little to offer along the way. Once you got to the back, things got interesting. The colors and texture of the cliffs look like something from a different planet. The hike itself was somewhat boring, but it was worth it in... More
