Many Sedona trailheads are in or near residential areas. Be aware of the noise you’re making, and please watch your speed. Watch for pedestrians when you’re entering and when you’re leaving a residential area.
Vehicle traffic gets heavy during busy visitor seasons in spring and fall. The City of Sedona provides a free shuttle service to the most popular trails. Safely leave your car at a park-n-ride location, then enjoy the relaxing views while your driver takes the wheel. The City’s transit system is expanding every year.
Leave no trace really means leave no trace. Visit Sedona’s trails, shops, and restaurants in a way that no one knows you were there. Pack out everything you pack in.
Always check the local fire hazard conditions when you arrive in town. During some dry months, fire of any kind is prohibited in outdoor spaces. Check the Forest Service website or call the Fire Restrictions Hotline at 928-226-4607.
The best thing to do with your poop, your toddler’s poop, or your pet’s poop is to pack it out with you. In a pinch, it is OK to use a digging tool to bury poop at least 6-to-7 inches in the ground. Always be prepared to respond appropriately when nature calls. Do not leave behind a dirty diaper or other trash.
