Discovery Treks has been taking adventurous groups on guided Sedona tours for years and they have some suggestions for your first visit.

If you want to have the best trip to Sedona, here are some places to hit on your first time.

Oak Creek Canyon & Wilson Mountain

There are plenty of Sedona hiking trails and scenic locations in the Oak Creek Canyon area, especially Wilson Mountain. For more adventurous visitors, taking a hike up Wilson Mountain might be appealing. Most of the 2,300-foot climb is in the first mile of the hike, so get ready for a workout. However, once you reach the top you’ll be treated to pristine views spanning hundreds of square miles. From the top, you can see all of Oak Creek Canyon, Sedona, Coffee Pot Rock, Capitol Butte, and more.

Visit the Sedona Red Rock District

Another must-see when visiting is the Sedona Red Rock district, which boasts a multitude of breathtaking vistas and a host of great day-hiking trails. Those who like to live a little more dangerously might consider renting a vehicle or ATV and striking out along the trail solo or taking a Jeep tour of the red rocks. Some rental agencies will give you some driving tips and advice and send you on your way, others might insist on coming along with you.

Take a Trip on the Sedona Trolley

The Sedona Trolley offers a great breakdown of some of the more family-friendly sights and sounds, as well as stops at some of the area’s most popular landmarks, like the Chapel of the Holy Cross and the Gallery District. Those who are craftier will also want to stay onboard to visit the Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village.
