Be Aware of
scrambling, swimming, boulder hopping, route finding, flash flood danger

boulder hopping and swimming through a Sedona canyon

This is a good canyon hike in the summer months. Don't be frustrated on the slow progress due to the boulders and route finding, enjoy it. There's occasional pools to cool off in or scramble around. You can go as far as you want and turn around, or you can find a buddy to shuttle you from one end to the other after your hike.

In some parts of this canyon, the walls surrounding you are 1000 feet high. Scrambling around and over boulders is fun!
