Vultee Arch Professional Review and Guide
"This short hike allows easy access to a well-known geologic feature of the Sedona area, plus it reveals some of the vegetation that is typical of this red rock country. A favorite among locals, this route sees a lot of activity, especially on weekends."
--Scott S. Warren, 100 Classic Hikes Arizona (The Mountaineers Books).
This was the third of three trails I hiked this day. After meeting a forest ranger on the trail at Devils Arch he recommended this trail to me as one of his favorites.
It is at the end of the road and the trail is one of three that start here. Look to the right and you will see it clearly marked. It is easy to moderate for those in shape and follows a stream bed for most of the time. There was some standing water so I did run into some misquotes for the first time today. This was fun trail with a great view from the back of the canyon out into a valley. The arch is just past an intersection on the left. Look for the dedication plaque in a rock highlighting why this is named Vultee Arch.
