2024/2025 Hiking Season

  • PLEASE NOTE: All hikers must have signed the online waiver and paid prior to showing up for a hike.
  • Most of our hikes begin either in the parking area at the Posse Ground in Sedona (indicated by a "PG" in the schedule) or in the rear parking lot of the Sedona Vista Village Shops in the Village of Oak Creek (indicated by "VOC"). Other starting points are indicated below. All hikers should be at the specified meeting place prior to the posted start time so we can leave for the trailhead as scheduled.
  • All hikes return in mid- or late afternoon.
  • All hike distances listed below represent approximate round-trip mileage and approximate cumulative elevation gain.
  • In keeping with the Letter Of Agreement between the Westerners and USFS, all hikes involving Wilderness (rated W12 below) strive to have at most 12 hikers in a group. If more hikers are at the meeting place they should split into groups, stagger the start times, and maintain separation throughout the hike. All groups hiking in other than Wilderness are limited in size to 25.
  • All hikers should be familiar with our hiking rules and hiking etiquette, including the USFS guidelines for archaeological sites.

 

Due to weather or other circumstances, Hike Bosses may cancel or change a scheduled hike without prior notice. Please check the website before heading out and click the "more info" button for additional hike information.
