April 17, 2021 | "Saturday in Sedona" | Moderate

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Join me for a "Saturday in Sedona"! We'll tackle the somewhat exclusive Soldier's Pass, which is limited to 12 total vehicles per day. This trail, while short, takes you to see some pretty awesome sites including the 7 Sacred Pools and the Devil's Kitchen. We'll then jet over to Oak Creek Homestead where we'll enjoy a fun trail ride that dumps us out near the 89A.

 

 

WHEN & WHAT!

  • Saturday, April 17th
  • We'll run Soldier's Pass Trail and head over to hit Oak Creek Homestead/Cliffhanger
  • After Oak Creek Homestead, feel free to enjoy Sedona or head home by way of Cottonwood to avoid the typical Sedona traffic
