Hiking is Sedona’s number one activity for locals and visitors alike. With ample opportunity to connect with nature and many trails for all skill levels most would consider Sedona the mecca of hiking. For those of you who are looking for an easy hike/stroll in a peaceful area, we have one more spot for you, Crescent Moon Ranch.
Crescent Moon Ranch is not only beautiful but very peaceful as well. While this is a hot spot to visit during the summer months it can be just as great in the winter months also. The water may be a bit chilly for a swim but you can still stroll along the banks of the river and enjoy the breath taking views of Cathedral Rock.
Pack a picnic lunch, bring a blanket and a book or even a frisbee and enjoy relaxing in the sun while taking in the amazing views around you. Bring your furry friend, Fido, or the kids along. They are bound to run out some energy! And you certainly don’t want to forget your camera. With a majestic background, you might even capture your Christmas card picture while visiting.
There is a $10 entry fee per vehicle to help with the upkeep and maintenance of the grounds and the public facilities.

Chapel of the Holy Cross is one of Sedona’s top tourists spots to visit. This Roman Catholic chapel was built right into the beautiful red rock of Sedona. Appearing to rise right out of the buttes, the towering cross gives an amazing view of the surrounding area. Built in 1956 by Marguerite Brunswig Staube, the chapel is intimate yet has a majestic view through the floor to ceiling windows.
Many come here for pictures, others for the view while some come to meditate and enjoy the atmosphere and view in the serene stillness of one of the benches. You will find that there are quite a few who visit this amazing place over and over again.
While there is not much to the chapel itself, it is an amazing place to visit and take in the surroundings. You will frequently see rock climbers all around climbing the beautiful red bluffs. Stop in the gift shop in the basement. They have some fantastic art by locals as well as rosaries to commemorate your visit.
It is a small walk from the parking lot to the chapel so bring your walking shoes. No need for hiking boots, there is a paved ramp and you can take your time. Note that there are no bathrooms on site but on the drive up to the chapel, there are a few ‘rest areas’ that you may stop off and use.
