The concierge at Best Western Sedona Inn recommended Fay Canyon - and we are so glad they did.
We are not a hiking family, but we did want to enjoy the Sedona outdoors.
This was a very basic hike thru the canyon with most of the tail with shaded trees and tall Sedona red rock in the close distance.
The best part was climbing the large rock at the end. This was our 6 year old sons favorite part to scale up the rock.
We did not wear special shoes, just basic tennis shoes and they were fine
Dont forget to bring a bottle of water for each as the round trip is about 1.5 to 2 hours.
We arrived at 10am on Thanksgiving with only 3 cars in the parking lot.
However, by the time we left at noon - the parking lot was full and the trail was quite busy.
If you want less tourists, then arrive before 10am.
Plus there is no fee for parking.
