Sinkholes & Spires:
Journey to one of Sedona's two sink holes and take in the beauty of red spires along the way. These trips range from an easy 1.5-mile walk to a 4-mile journey winding your way around the red rocks to our most impressive sink hole.

Spend some time on Sedona's slickrock and you'll never want to hike a dirt path again! This is a moderate hike on a cross-country route or an established trail.
Sinaguan Rock Art:
Visit ancient rock art panels of the Verde Valley and discuss the early Puebloan cultures of Sedona and the Southwest as well as the mystery of their disappearance.
Sedona Grand Adventure:
This is a great combination trip for those with limited time in Sedona. We'll spend the morning hiking a spectacular red rock trail and enjoying a picnic lunch. The afternoon will include a more leisurely backroad drive in a comfortable SUV. The best of both worlds for a Sedona backcountry experience!
