Driving south on State Route 89A from Flagstaff, you drop some 1,500 feet off the Mogollon Rim at the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau into an astonishing landscape of vermilion and buff-colored cliffs, mesas, and spires. This is the Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness that sprawls in a northwesterly direction from the City of Sedona. It is among the most oft-visited regions in Arizona. Here, high elevation canyons drain into perennial Oak Creek and the Verde River, Arizona’s only waterway with a Wild and Scenic River designation. This trail guide covers an area with 58 miles of trails.
