  • Back

  • Start at the busy parking area at the Bridge. Busy for a quick look but not for a hike.
    At the parking go north, at the right there is a trail head sign. A steady and continues climb head up Wilson Mountain.
    The flowers in September were beautiful, everything looked yellow. This trail is easier, but there is not much shade as compared to the North trail, that is reached at First Bench.
    Going back down an alternative trail at the crossing, meets the trail running to Wilson Canyon. See pictures/film from the Wilson Mountain North Trail for the awsome view of Sedona.
    At First Bench it is possible to go further up 1.0 Mile to a crossing (this was the last real climb) and go left for 0.4 Mile to the top at 7000 Feet. Or go right at the crossing another 1.4 Mile to a 6840 Feet top.
