Summer Hiking in Sedona is Very Special
Summer Hiking In Sedona
Jordon Park Trailhead
Uptown Sedona
 Summer hiking in Sedona is a big draw and visitors soon learn that you need to get up early to get a good parking spot at the trailhead of your choice.  Most trailheads have parking lots with insufficient spaces for the traffic of hikers that want to use them.  There are a couple of trailheads that have lots of parking.  One that has a lot of appeal for those who enjoy summer hiking in Sedona is Jordon Park Trailhead. Here are some positive reasons why I recommend this trailhead:

Bell Rock Pathway
As some of you know, many of the red rocks in Sedona are named.  This is an image of "The Mermaid" laying on her side. It is very prominent as you come over the hill on SR 179 heading north from the Big Park area of Sedona.
This map shows all the trailheads of the Red Rock Scenic Byway in the

The Soldiers Pass area can be accessed right from my front door.  It is a three to four minute walk to two different parts of the trail. You would never know that you are located close to the center of town from this area. Trails meander up and down arroyos as well as two of the most well known features.
