Sedona Walking and Hiking Tour Map

Itinerary

Day 1 Experience the desert colors of vibrant Sedona, encircled by dramatic canyons, pine forests and red-rock scenery  Hike past multicolored spires and mesmerizing sandstone formations  Admire the desert stars from an outdoor terrace at a resort surrounded by stunning cliffs and mesas.

Day 2 Explore Red Rock State Park on foot, passing through a red sandstone canyon and past thriving creek habitats  Follow the Kisva Trail, taking in the colors and scents of cottonwood, sycamore, Arizona alder and ash trees  As you cross dry creek beds and ponderosa pine woodland, behold the shades of red and burnt-orange painted by nature onto cliffs and buttes  Climb to an overlook on Wilson Mountain, the area's highest peak, for extraordinary panoramic views.

Day 3 Be transported by the spectacular desert landscapes around Brins Mesa and Mescal Mountain  Visit crimson cliffs, desert gardens and towering buttes  Relax on the private deck of your luxurious room at the Enchantment Resort  Dine alfresco under the expansive desert sky.

Days 4-5 Step into one of Sedona's famed energy vortexes in Boynton Canyon, believed to be created by spiraling spiritual energy  Witness the twisted tree trunks and seemingly swirling rock formations of these gravitational anomalies  Walk along trails lined with agave plants, manzanita and prickly pear  Swim a few laps in the pool or treat yourself to a massage at the award-winning spa  Savor the flavors of Southwestern cuisine  Look out on famous Chimney Rock and Cockscomb Butte from the flat-topped mesa on top of Doe Mountain.

From breathtaking red-rock formations and dramatically blue skies to atmospheric towns and luxurious desert retreats, the mystical charm of the Sedona area is truly unique. I hope you'll join Backroads on this wonderful new trip and fall in love with this region as we have.
