Sedona - Beaverhead Route

Rating *****
length 7 mile - 3 hour 15 minutes (round trip). Moderate/Easy.
Height 3720 - 4800 feet
Access All Cars, Take Hwy 179 to Phoenix. After the village of Oak Creek at Mile 303, the second dirt road on you left. If you see cairns just beyond the gate you're on the right one. Park the car just outside the gate, it is probably no longer allowed to drive any further..

  • Back

  • An ancient Hopi trail later a wagon trail to Flagstaff. Nice quiet trail off the beaten track.

    Go true the gate and follow the cairns, there are plenty of them on this first stretch.
    The trail goes right and uphill on a rocky trail.
    The trail is rocky (small rocks) up to the view point.
    After the view point the trail becomes a lot easier and more level.
    A mile after the view point the trail gets fainter but the cairns remain so the trail is still easy to follow.
    The trail goes on after the stop point.

    Prepare: Take you alpine mountain hiking boots made for rocky terrain, that have ankle protection and your hiking stick along.

    There is very little shade on this hike except for resting.

    Hiking time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes return, up to the view point.


    Disclamer: Read this first before you start your hike.
