Sedona April 2nd to April 8th 2023
Sedona, April 2nd to April 8th, 2023. Please Register here if you are interested in the Sedona Trip.
I arrange the hikes; everyone is expected to figure out their food and accommodation. I will also be doing some walks.
Claire will be at the Red Agave Resort https://www.redagaveresort.net. in Oak Creek Village which is about 15 minutes out of downtown Sedona.
We will have the rig out at Page Springs Resort which also has tent spaces and is very affordable. On a creek. We arriving Sunday the 2nd and checking out Saturday the 8th
Also, just down the road from Page Springs is Lo-Lo-Mai which has a variety of cabins and prices as well as camping. This is wine country but only 15 minutes from Sedona and hiking.
Off 89a on the way to Jerome (left side of map)
Also, if people are interested, we can add a couple of days and go up to Page to do the Antelope Canyons, which are spectacular. Please register if you are interested, and I will send you a link with more information.
Weather in Sedona in early April, 40's in the mornings, 70's in the afternoons so great hiking weather.
The landscape is stunning, there is a lot to see and do in addition to hiking.
400 miles from Palm Springs, the fastest route is 10 to 60 to 17 but the route through Prescott is the prettiest. (curvey road in places)
The Red Agave Resort has full kitchen facilities. Right now I am thinking a potluck on Tuesday and Thursday or a potluck and restaurant one night depending on interest.
There is an endless supply of things to do in Sedona. Jeep tours, hot air balloons, art galleries, spas, vortexes etc. See guide below.

Ancient Cliff Dwelling and Pictographs Sheltered by Colorfull Cliffs of Red Canyon RThe Palatki Heritage Site and its sister site, Honanki, were the largest cliff dwellings of the Red Rock Country between AD 1150 - 1350. They were first described by Dr. Jesse Walter Fewkes, famous turn-of-the century archaeologist from the Smithsonian Institution, who gave them the Hopi names of Honanki (Badger House) and Palatki (Red House). The Hopi, however, have no specific names for these sites. The Palatki Heritage Site cliff dwelling and rock art site is located near the town of Sedona in north-central Arizona. Currently managed by the U.S. Forest Service under the Red Rock Pass Program, the site is open to the general public for visits seven days a week (closed Thanksgiving and Christmas). A small visitor center and bookstore, run by the Arizona Natural History Association, is located a short distance from the parking lot.
