Highlight: Soldier's Pass Trail
Located just outside of central Sedona, Soldiers Pass is the ultimate transition from urban, to seclusion. This 4x4 trail starts just behind a neighborhood, but quickly turns into a remote off-road pathway that guides you towards some of Sedona's best kept scenic secrets. Right past the beginning of the trail, you will come upon the Devil's Kitchen Sinkhole--A massive sinkhole that formed in the early 1880's, and continued to grow larger in 1989, this sinkhole measures over 150ft in width. Further down Soldiers Pass Trail, you will come upon the Seven Sacred Pools, a series of indentations in the red rocks naturally formed over time to create a series of pools that fill up with water during the rainy months. Once you reach the end point of this trail you can continue on foot down the Soldiers Pass hiking trail, where you'll discover the real hidden "gems" of this route. Head north and follow the trail towards the Brin's Mesa Loop where you will find many hidden arches, caves, and traces of Indian dwellings.
