Devils Bridge

Sedona, AZ

Was steep but a short hike. The trail was in moderate shape. Was slippery in places with pea gravel. Great wiew from the top. The trail went to the top of this one. This is a heavily traveled attraction.

Elden Lookout Trail

Start on Fatmans Loop heading up the right (or left if you prefer) side until you reach the junction trail up Mt Elden. Trail up is pretty steep and rocky but worth the effort. Beautiful views at the top. Some sliding on the rocks, dirts and leaves coming down. The day we went it was pretty windy and even more so up top and I was glad to have an extra layer of clothes in my backpack.

Very enjoyable easy to moderate loop hike. We went counterclockwise and found the trail to be easy to manage. Signs are posted and easy to read.

Easy trail, mostly incline heading in. It's gradual and easy to take. There were several others out there including a dozen or so bikes.

The trail map shown here is a system of which Sunset is the first leg.

Lava River Cave

Thoroughly enjoyed the drive out to the cave. I should state here that I am claustrophobic. Probably not the kind of person who needs to attempt this hike. It had snowed before we arrived so the setting was beautiful. I let my sister lead the way but she had a hard time navigating the rocks. I took over the lead and we lost all daylight. Our headlamps seemed to be swallowed by the dark inside the cave. As I worked my way down I continued to hear the labored breathing of my sister. She finally said she couldn't do it and I immediately told her we could go back. Of all the trails I want to revisit, this is NOT one of them.

Extremely fun! Very dark and cold cave so bring a sweater and a head lamp! The trail is only about a mile long but it seems to never end. The cave at time is very big (30ft) and at time very small (you'll be crawling) highly recommend trying this one out.

It costs 5 dollars per person to get into walnut canyon but it's well worth the visit. This canyon if full of cliff dwellings and it's full of information. It's a short hike down into the crayon(lots of stairs) half the trail was closed due to maintenance.

Very unique and fun little hike. Pitch black so make sure you bring a head lamp. You'll need to use your hands for crawling and scaling up and down rocks in the dark.

Island Trail

Great short trail. Be sure to read the well placed, information markers. No long views to be seen but it's fun to climb inside some of the cliff-side dwellings and imagine living there with all the kids, mom and dad, grandma and grandpa and the family dog! The climb from bottom to top is an air thief but it's not too far back to the visitors center and their great little book shop. Be sure to look at the great notebooks full of pictures and take special note of the ones showing the rock slide a few short years back! Very interesting.

Rio De Flag Nature Trail

Very pretty, but not marked well. You can go into the museum and get a map, but it's pretty rudimentary. There's poison ivy on the trail, so be sure to look out for that and stay in areas that are marked.
