Beginner Backpack Trip into a Wilderness Area near Sedona

  • November 2, 2013 · 6:30 AM

This is an in-and-out five mile (ten miles total) beginner backpack trip in a wilderness area near Sedona at an elevation of 4100 feet.  The road is paved to the trailhead.  The trail has very little elevation gain or loss for the first 4.5 miles.  We will spend the day along the creek and hike the last half mile to camp in the late afternoon.  The last half mile is up a ridge with almost 500 feet of elevation gain.  We will hike out Sunday morning and have lunch in Sedona. We will be home by mid-afternoon Sunday.  More details to follow.

    Why are most of the trips with this meet up limited to such small numbers?

    I can't make this one so if you could take me off the wait list. Please leave me on the other beginner one Nov 30. Can't wait to learn some skills.

    Where are you planning to backpack near Sedona. Live here & wondering the location. Thank you! Trailhead/area would be most helpful, so can check on map.

      Size of the group can be limited for a number of reasons. The Hike Leader might feel comfortable leading just a few others the he doesn't know off the beaten path. In this case, where we are spending the night is a small area that only a few can camp at.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
