Sedona in March with an active 10 year old

We will be visiting AZ in mid March and will spend 4 days in Scottsdale visiting friends and 3 days in Sedona with 1 day being a day trip to GCNP. I am looking for recommendations for great hikes (we're all pretty fit) or outdoor activities for our family as well as dining options etc. What weather should we expect in Sedona in March? I'm sure it will be cooler then Scottsdale, just not sure how much. Any and all advice is appreciated.

Read the Itineraries on the right side of this page. You have two days in Sedona. Hike at Bell Rock and at Red Rock Crossing. Also read the restaurant links from this page and then ask specific questions about the places that interest you. At the very least give us a budget and tell us what you like to eat.

Expect days to be pleasant but know that snow is possible. Nights will be very cold. GCNP will be winter

I would suggest the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow Tour and then possibly take a lunch to Red Rock Crossing. Plenty for him/her to explore along the creek and the wooded area. It's a lovely spot with great views and a nice area to take a good hike.

Two days isn't much time to spend here. Your son will probably love the Pink Jeep Tour, so schedule that at the beginning of your trip.

As you enter the area check in at the Visitor Center in the Village of Oak Creek and get a parking permit plus information plus great photo op.

Hiking: look up Montezuma's Castle and Circle V Bar V (short hike/walk with educational value). Circle V Bar V is open limited days and hours.

Breakfast: Coffee Pot

Lunch: Sedona Memories (limited seating, weekdays only) Great sandwiches, huge portions

Dinner with a 10-year-old: Pizza? Pago's or the Hideaway. I would choose Elote Cafe for Southwestern food, but not sure about your son
