Sedona Recreation: Each one ofthese amazing hikes has its own individual character. Special attractions on Sedona's extensive network of trails are as varied as their degree of difficulty, unique location and historical significance. Some hikes lead to high elevations, some hug winding creeks, some afford stunning views of distant vistas, some offer intimate beauty. It's hard to pick a favorite hike, but you can't go wrong no matter what choice you make. Just remember hiking safety rules and that litter defaces. Please take out everything you bring in to the national forest.
Mountain Biking in Sedona offers an extensive network of trails, some of which do double duty as hiking trails. New bike paths are being added all the time; the latest additions border the very scenic Red Rock Scenic Byway (State Route 179). However, bikes are off limits in specially designated wilderness areas. Biking enthusiasts enjoy the annual Sedona Century bicycle event or the Bike MS: Ride the Vortex.
