A great and at at times moderately strenuous hike. Nice hike to get away from the usual crowds. Canyon views are wonderful.

We started our trek from the Encinosa Picnic/Day Use area and took the north Wilson Mt. Trail #123. It is a gradual uphill hike for about a mile, then turns to switchbacks. This portion of the trail I would classify as moderate/advanced due to the...More

Just north of Sedona on Hwy 89A, turn immediately left once you cross Midgely Bridge. This is easy to get to but unfortunately the lot is very small and difficult to find a parking space when the weather is nice. If you are lucky, head...More

We are just getting into the rigor of hiking, so Wilson Canyon was a good choice for us. Parking is tight, and as with all of the trail heads in the Res Rock State Park, a day fee is required to park. UNLESS: you have...More

Great views worth the hike to the top of Wilson Mountain. We took the trailhead from the north parking lot and proceeded to the top, including the Sedona lookout. The views were spectacular from the top and well worth the hike. The total hike up...More

This was a tough and long ascent. TAKE POLES - you will need them up and down. We approached from Wilson North. Walked through tall growth forest with Autumn colors and leaves falling. Stones, pebbles, sand make the steep ascent/descent treacherous. After 2500" ascent (2...More
