Short but memorable. Incredible scenery with some challenging rock ledges to climb. Very close to Sedona and quick to drive. A popular hiking trail weaves back and forth along the road and through the main attractions. Please don’t throw things into pools or sinkholes. non-street-legal vehicles are allowed, but there is no place to park a trailer. This trail was threatened to be shut down; however, the locals were able to petition for a free permit system. Permits need to be submitted 72 hours in advance. Go to: www.recreation.gov/4251901
