While I don’t love having to pay the entry fee when I’ve already paid for Red Rock passes to go hiking, I go to Slide Rock several times every time I visit Sedona. My husband and I pick out our hikes for the morning, get...More

I visited here in May. The weather was very warm, but the water was cold … coming from the mountain and all. It was very busy here, but definitely a pretty sight. I'll absolutely visit again when its hotter in the middle of summer.

Bring comfy or hiking shoes, a lot of good angles for photography. There is a trail which I did not walk. Unfortunately, the lower part next to the river is not accessible for wheelchairs, it is about two flights of stairs. Note walking along the...More

Being so close to Sedona, we were kind of disappointed in this SP. 2 of the 3 bridges had washed out and the hike to the highest vantage point was nice but the view a disappointment because most of the park is surrounded on its...More

Probably mild enough to visit but likely too cold for swimming. I was there in late November and it snowed just north in flagstaff and we had coats and scarfs in Sedona.

I had a regular two piece bathing suit and no issues. Slipping and falling is definitely more of a concern. Water shoes will help.

We have 3 teenage boys who like to stay on the move, so we are hitting as many sights as we can. That being said, we may need to eliminate North Rim or Page due to time constraints. 1. Would you eliminate one of these stops? 2. What "adventures" should we splurge on that would be most appealing to teenage boys? I have done the pink Jeep and don't think I want to repeat it. Hot air balloon seems cost prohibitive for 5. Any other suggestions? Here's a draft of the itinerary so far: ...More

Since you are going to the south rim, I would eliminate the north rim if you have to eliminate something. A few hours at the north rim really isn't worth it because the few viewpoints are so spread out. At Page, visit the dam, maybe kayak or take a float trip or a Lake Powell boat cruise. Also visit Horseshoe Bend. In Sedona, do another jeep tour. Red Rock Soldiers Trail is good and the Pink Jeep Scenic Rim tour is also nice. Maybe also visit Jerome, some interesting shops (Nelly Bly...More

We are coming to visit July 21 for a few days and staying at L'Auberge. The main purpose of our visit is to RELAX. It is also our wedding anniversary. My husband will play golf while I go to the spa one day. The other day we would love to go on a hike or two. Since it will be warm and I'm not in top cardio shape (shame) we are looking for a few beautiful hikes that are relatively easy. If there is one hike and one sight we just shouldn't miss when visiting Sedona. They don't have to be the...More

On day 2 see the Visitor Center, ride the red shuttle to western view points and give some time to the rim path at the hotel zone. Most of what you have on your list is not at Sedona. Bearizona is near Williams and could be visited on your way to Grand Canyon National Park. Note, it's a better zoo alternative to Out of Africa. Verde Canyon RR and Blazin M make a good afternoon/evening package. Make it a really long day be adding Out of Africa or Jerome in the morning. Montezuma Castle is...More
