2020/2021 Hiking Season

  • PLEASE NOTE: All hikers must have signed the online waiver and paid prior to showing up for a hike.
  • All 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 outlet mall in the Village of Oak Creek (indicated by "VOC".) 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.
  • Please bring a pen to sign the Register, a face mask, and hand sanitizer for each hike.

 

Due to weather or other circumstances, Hike Bosses may cancel or change a scheduled hike without prior notice.
