Sedona Map

Tucked amidst towering red sandstone formations, Sedona is a city incomparable to anywhere else in Arizona. In the middle of otherworldly ochre scenery, Sedona serves as the spiritual and artistic hub of the state. Wander its streets to sit down with psychics, learn about alternative medicine, dine on world-class cuisine, and get in touch with the earth’s energy. Where the spas and galleries end, the desert begins. In fact, Sedona’s iconic red sandstone formations loom above you everywhere you go within the city, and an extensive network of trails reaches right into town to offer unbeatable access to the outdoors.

While Sedona has been a haven for the alternative and mystical since the 1980s, the fascinating landscape was formed over thousands and thousands of years. Illuminated by the rising and setting sun, the sandstone layer found here is found nowhere else on the planet. Deposited during the Permian Period, water and wind have since shaped the rock into bizarre mountains, towers, and buttes. Cacti, agave, wildflowers, and juniper trees flourish after spring rains, dotting the sea of red with bright color. And of course, Sedona’s famed vortexes swirl their energy in hidden corners. Miles and miles of trails explore far into the desert, utilized throughout the year by hikers, mountain bikers, campers, off-road drivers, and horseback riders.

Sedona is a must-see destination, especially for outdoor lovers. Whether you’re on two feet, cruising on a bike, or bumping along in a Jeep, you’ll fall in love with the natural beauty of the land and the top-notch offerings in town. Don’t know where to start? Our expansive catalogue of route guides will help you pick the perfect adventure. Go get some red dirt on your boots!
