SERENITY AT ITS BESTIf you're into trail riding and haven’t been to Sedona to ride, move it to the top of your bucket list right now!
Sedona’s trail system is extensive and labyrinthine. There are easy routes like Bell Rock Pathway so that the whole family can get out into the red rocks. There are flowy, fast sand and slickrock single tracks, like Llama Trail, for the intermediate-advance mountain biker. There are also some sketchy scary high and tight technical routes like Made in the Shade for those thrill seekers out there.
A wonderful adventure for all ages.
Sedona and the Verde Valley have some great road rides to some unique destinations. Two National Monuments, eclectic artsy former mining towns, red rocks and even a river make riding in this area an adventure!
Looking for something close to home?Afternoon Hike
The Camelback Mountain hike is one of the most popular hikes in Phoenix. Camelback Mountain is just 20 minutes from downtown and can be seen all over the area, rising to 2,707 feet. It’s a popular spot for hikers, rock climbers, and tourists, so make sure you do the hike as early as possible, with sunrise being the sweet spot. There are a few ways to hike Camelback Mountain, and this guide takes the easier, less trafficked, and more scenic Cholla Trail. It’s still a tough hike, but the Cholla Trail is a nicer way to hike Camelback Mountain, which is a must-do Phoenix hike.
Equally great for older kids and adults.
About 450,000 people a year hike Camelback Mountain, and it can feel like all of them are with you on the trail if you leave at the wrong time. It’s not only important to leave early to beat the crowds, but also to beat the heat. You’re in the middle of the desert, and if the temperatures are high, the heat can be serious.
