Wilson Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"This is an easy, popular walk up a red-rock canyon in the Red Rock–Secret Mountain Wilderness. The Wilson Canyon Trail starts from the north end of the parking area and stays near the rim of the inner canyon. After this gorge ends at a high, dry waterfall, the Jim Thompson Trail branches left. The trail wanders another half-mile up the canyon though fine stands of Arizona cypress before fading out."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Northern Arizona (Falcon Guides).
The Wilson Canyon trail is a good short hike that is close to Sedona. It would probably make a good after dinner hike, but in the summer it's best to start it early in the morning. By afternoon, the parking lot can become quite crowded.
