We’re used to some pretty dreary winters in our home state, so getting to run around the red rocks of Sedona on a perfectly sunny 65 degree day in February felt like such a gift. Brie & Daniel are Arizona natives, climbers, and all around awesome people. They made this hike look like a piece of cake.
This 4.3 mile roundtrip hike took us along jeep trails, a massive sinkhole, and iconic Sedona landmarks. We met the cutest pup, had a quick outfit change, and then finally…a hidden cave tucked away in the red cliff walls. With a little bit of scrambling, we were able to climb into the cave and had the place to ourselves for a beautiful display of late evening light. It’s nights like this that remind us why we suggest Arizona for winter hiking adventures. Arizona is an adventure-lover’s playground with world-class hiking trails with views unlike anywhere else.
