This trail starts a few miles north of Sedona. We were attempting to do some higher elevation hikes, but reports indicated snowshoes would be needed. This trail became constant snow after little over a mile.
We crossed the creek half a dozen times with lots of red rock formations around us. The trail was obvious to about 3 miles. At this point it went down to the creek and didn’t come out. The snow was knee deep here. I spent about half an hour wandering about tripping over buried rocks then turned back. Lynn found some large icicles on the way back.
I noticed a easy slope heading up the side of a rock formation which we followed 100 feet up to an awesome perch with some fantastic views.....lunch time!
The return trip was very nice except for the soaked feet.
