What do I need to know about Sedona hiking trails?

Sedona Hiking Trails

Sedona hiking trails range from easy to strenuous. The area can be hot in the summer, so bring water. Summertime brings thousands of visitors to the Slide Rock area, as well. Hikes outside the main canyon area will be less crowded, and there are over 100 hiking trails in the nearby Coconino National Forest.

If you want to hike in the National Forest, you'll need a Red Rock Pass to park, and the pass comes with a trail guide so you can choose the right trail for you. You can get a pass at the Forest Service Visitor Centers, or at the Sedona Chamber of Commerce.

Many Sedona hikers recommend the Fay Canyon hike because it offers great views, is relatively short, and is easy. Another longer hike, the Jim Thompson Trail, is easy to moderate, and a little longer at five miles. It offers some great views of Steamboat Rock.
