Hiking Trail or Trailhead
William Bohan is the premier hiking trail selection website for Sedona hiking trails. With descriptions and typical photographs of each trail, you are able to compare different trails. The website serves an important function by helping you choose the right hiking trails as well as recommending outstanding businesses in the area.

While the website provides free hiking information, it it should be used only for selecting hikes and not actually hiking the trail. For hiking the trail you should purchase an up-to-date hiking guide, Great Sedona Hikes Third Edition. Great Sedona Hikes is Sedona's best, most up-to-date hiking guide, and is available here. If you are interested in finding Sedona's Vortexes you'll find links from the website to Sedona's most user-friendly book to find the location of Sedona's Vortexes.

For actually hiking the trails, to enhance your safety and enjoyment, I strongly recommend purchasing a copy of Great Sedona Hikes Third Edition available here.
