Wilson Mountain/North Wilson Trail

NileGuide Expert Says:

The entire length of this trail is 5.6 miles each way, though it could easily be cut in half for those hikers who got a late start. It’s a strenuous hike, but a wide angle lens will produce amazing photographs.

One of the most challenging hikes Sedona has to over, but not without great rewards for those prepared to take the challenge. This trail offers some of the most breathtaking panoramic views of the vast Sedona wilderness and Verde Valley. Those looking to explore the local wildlife should plan this hike early in the morning; visitors who tread lightly have a good chance of seeing mule deer, javelina, and coyotes. On hot days, watch for snakes. After an hour or so into the Wilson Mountain Trail, hikers have the option of continuing onto the North Wilson Trail, making for a "there-and-back" round trip of nearly 5 hours. Two miles north of Sedona on 89A, the trailhead is just north of Midgely Bridge where you'll find a small parking lot and a monument to Richard Wilson who was killed by a grizzly in this area in 1885. There are, of course, no grizzlies here anymore.
