Sedona is a fantastic destination for offroad enthusiasts. It offers a variety of trails with varying degrees of difficulty. One of the top 10 iconic 4x4 trails in Sedona is the Cliffhanger Trail, which has a name that instills curiosity and intrigue. Once you make your way down the narrow and suspension-banging Cliffhanger hill, you will want to take a 1/2-mile hike to the old homestead along Oak Creek and dip your feet in the water. Remember to bring your hiking shoes, as the hike back to your vehicle will be a bit of a climb.
Apart from the offroad trails in Sedona, the Coconino National Forest extends to Flagstaff, offering endless trails in the pine forests that reach up to 7,000 feet in elevation at the top of the Mogollon Rim. It is a perfect escape from the summer heat in the Verde Valley.
Sedona has over 200 hiking trails covering more than 400 miles, providing plenty of options for hikers. You can venture deep into the wilderness of Red Rock Secret Mountain or Sycamore Canyon or explore the urban trails just a stone's throw away from downtown Sedona.
If you are interested in history, Sedona is home to several ancient ruin sites where you can glimpse life in cliff dwellings dating back to AD 1150 - 1350. Honanki, located at the end of the Outlaw Trail, and Palatki, just down Loy Butte Road, are two such sites.
