Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness

by: Editor on 11/12/2017

 

This is one secret you have to uncover. The official name of these buttes, canyons and cliffs holds the unofficial title of one of the most incredible natural works of art in existence. A single word to describe the Secret Mountain Wilderness? Colorful. Red is a common hue around the Sedona region, but this collection of wild beauty takes “red rocks” to the extreme. Covering nearly 44,000 acres, the formations are sculpted by wind and water to create unbelievable arches, pinnacles and slot canyons.

Here, you’ll find a number of “nature’s windows” and an offering of trails that will take you on a unique adventure deep into the maze of formations. Follow one trail and explore hidden gorges. Keep going and you’ll be whisked away to other-worldly panorama views. Throughout the trails, you’ll also be treated to natural and manmade wonders from Sedona’s past. Keep an eye out for rock art, old dwellings and more.

Can You Keep a Secret?

Leaving the chaparral to the hidden grotto, or climbing up a slope to challenge yourself at a precipice, there’s no end to the adventures you’ll find here. It’s possible for you to be the first person in modern history to uncover a particular view in these thousands of acres. As the manzanitas surround you, it’s an experience like no other.

This area is beloved by those who long for solitude in the wilderness, miles of hiking or horse trails, photographers and birders. No motorized vehicles are allowed, and although it’s open year-round, autumn and winter are the best seasons for a safe outing.
