Secret Mountain: Sedona’s Secret Mountain Wilderness is the perfect place for an adventurous camping trip.  Located in the northwestern portion of Sedona at the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau, this mountain area lives up to its name with high mountains, deep forests, large canyons, red rocks, natural arches and the west fork of Oak Creek.  See if you can discover what the secret of the mountain is and enjoy a trip like no other.

Don’t be surprised if you catch a glimpse of a black bear, mountain lion, ringtail cat, rapture birds and other amazing wildlife while hiking through this area.

Vortex Tour: Vortex refers to an area of concentrated energy. The vortexes of Sedona are believed to be sacred.  These sites have powerful spiritual significance, and are a popular place for people to visit who are seeking vision, wisdom, support and meditation.  There are a number of these vortex sites in the Sedona area, including upflow and inflow vortexes.  Make sure you take some time to visit these sites while in Sedona.

Oak Creek: Home to the rare desert riparian habitat, this creek is a must-see while in the area.  Take a hike along the creek and discover numerous species of lizards, amphibians, fish, insects, beavers and birds.  This is an excellent spot for the budding scientist and will make a great addition to your wildlife photo album.
