Sedona’s moderate weather is calling out to people from all over to come hike, enjoy and explore the beautiful red rocks. Ready or not, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing and outdoor yoga season has begun (February - October)! It may have come a month (or two) earlier than usual in 2015, but locals and visitors are already taking advantage of this opportunity to get outside and be in the sunshine.
One of the most asked questions on Sedona.net is “What are the best hikes in Sedona?” Our answer is that it really depends on what you’re going for and your level of fitness. Everyone knows about West Fork in the fall, Cathedral Rock for amazing views, Bell Rock for yoga since it is a vortex and endless mountain biking trails for every level of adventurer. Our suggestion is to go explore some trails you’ve never been to this spring.
Our friends at Wasatch Tech have developed an app called Sedona Hiking App that has 100 trails that you can access offline. With 360 total miles of documented GPS trails in and around the gorgeous red rocks of Sedona, the App enables you to follow your progress on a hike without getting lost. No cell service is needed. You can enjoy the hike knowing the hike’s distance, difficulty, description, approximate time to hike, and elevation in order to pick the hikes best suited to you. You can even follow your progress with real-time GPS location on the trail screen.
If you’re a Sedona regular and think you’ve done it all, or even if this is your first time visiting, this App opens up a hundred new possibilities (minus the trails you’ve already hiked) and is a really cool way to safely go exploring. The directions to the trailhead are clear and the descriptions of the trails’ difficulty are accurate.
With these extra months of warm weather, you’ll be tempted to spend more time hiking and playing outdoors in Sedona. This Sedona Hiking App is a great little tool to help you get moving in the right direction.
