Trails

Hiking and backpacking, horseback riding, and mountain biking opportunities in Red Rock Country are virtually unlimited, with over 200 miles of trail. Visitors may enjoy short and easy trips on urban trails or long and challenging adventures through remote backcountry areas.

Many Red Rock Country trails enter federally designated wilderness areas. Mountain bikes are prohibited in these areas. Please respect the primitive character of these protected places and the experiences of others: Do Not Bike In Wilderness!

Desert vegetation is fragile and easily damaged by traveling through previously undisturbed areas. Off-trail travel is harmful to vegetation and causes soil erosion, particularly on slopes. Keep the National Forest green: Remain On Designated Trails!

Parking is very limited at most trailheads. Keep in mind, there might not be room for RV's, trailers, and buses.

"W" under the WILDERNESS heading = All or part of the trail is in a designated Wilderness Area.

Not all of the listed trails have "links" to descriptions. We are working on this. In the meantime, you may find more information at two non-forest-related websites: Great Sedona Hikes . com and The Hike House, which includes a trail rating system. These sitea have some great photos, too.
