Loy Canyon is a towering side canyon on the western side of Sedona. As we hike the first 4 miles along the bottom of the canyon we can see beautiful red rock formations above and if you look closely you will see Indian ruins. We gain[masked] feet on this portion of the hike. At the end of the canyon we climb steeply another[masked] feet in less than a mile to the top. From here one can go another quarter mile and see wonderful views of the canyon below. Or if you choose, head in the other direction toward Secret Mountain in the cooler air of the pines and see the old cowboy cabin. Or, for the folks who want to see some history, visit Secret Cabin, purported to have been a polygamist family's home.Bring plenty of water! We do drive about 10 miles in off the paved road on a graded dirt road to the trailhead.
Red Rock Pass or Nat’l Park Pass Required. Passes not available at trailhead.
After the hike we intend to head over to Pine and attend Oktoberfest at the Rimside Grill - REAL German food, REAL German beer, raffles, prizes, contests, volleyball, horseshoes, pine breezes..ahhhh.
