We suggest hiking preparedness, which includes hiking safety, maps of Sedona trails, hiking gear, education, etc. Once the essentials are covered then selecting the best hiking trail for your abilities and desires is the most important thing to ensure an over the top hiking experience. There are easy trails, moderate trails, and hard trails but these simple classifications do not allow for the complex diversity of the hiking trails that Sedona offers. The user friendly Sedona Trail Rating System takes classification to another level.  And visit our friends at the Hike House for all your hiking information, supplies and accessories.
