Picture yourself hiking deep into the red rock country surrounding Sedona, Arizona, discovering hidden canyons, stunning desert vistas, sandstone towers and mesas, and more. And learning about the amazing geology and human history of the area. Then, after a day of unforgettable hiking, returning to hand-picked lodging and fantastic local Sedona eateries. Then maybe a moon-lit walk to a viewpoint in town that is a must-see spot. Now imagine 3 or 4 days of this - soaking up the Arizona sun, and the beauty and tranquility of Sedona, long enough it seeps into your soul. And you take some of it home with you. That's why to at some point enjoy a Sedona hiking vacation.
The short answer is 'absolutely.' While Sedona is not a national park, it is surrounded by national forest, which is another form of federally protected natural landscapes. The Sedona area is also home to wilderness areas, which are designated roadless to preserve their wildness and pristine nature. Perhaps most importantly, Sedona is as special and beautiful as many of America's national parks. It is a world-class hiking destination.
Hiking guides provide tremendous value in Sedona. Because of the sheer number of Sedona hiking trails, a guided tour allows you to maximize your visit by only doing the best ones. Sedona can also get quite crowded, and so knowing how and when to hike to optimize the solitude is a huge added benefit. Sedona is a desert environment without an abundance of water, and every year hundreds of hikers get into trouble in Northern Arizona by not understanding the environment. Guides raise the level of safety so guests can go for it and push their limits. Also, guides can bring an area to life through their personal passion, their knowledge and through enhancing guests' 'sense of place' by conveying natural and cultural history, fascinating local stories, and pointing out important landmarks.
