Day Hikes in Sedona, Arizona

We are repeat visitors to the Sedona area and have hiked many, many of the "shorter" hikes (less than 6-8 mi) in the area. This is my favorite of the dozens of trails we have taken. The Cow Pies area is interesting for it's unusual rock formations, but the real treat arrives at the saddle of Mitten Ridge. While I have visited most of the Vortex sites with no effect, the scenic grandeur from the top of Mitten Ridge was a true "mountain top" experience -- majestic, serene, peaceful.
In the 3 or 4 hours we spent on this trail, we saw a total of 8 people -- and 6 were within a 1/2 mile of the parking lot!
This hike epitomizes the Sedona experience to me!
