short and easy stroll to a neat natural arch through a pretty canyon
Sedona has recently instituted a "Red Rock Pass", which is a fancy way of saying you need to pay to play. As of April 2004, the fee is $5 per day per vehicle. There are plenty of places in and around Sedona to pay this fee and get the receipt, which you need to put on your vehicle dash to keep from being towed.
This well marked trail heads through a shady canyon to start. After about 0.5 miles on this flat trail, keep your eyes on the canyon right to see the natural arch. A reasonably well marked trail starts off here to the arch. The arch requires a short scramble to climb up on top. Watch your step!
After admiring the arch, continue up the last 0.5 miles to the end of the canyon. Please respect any ruins or artifacts you see.
After this hike, you'll most likely be looking for another one in the area... I know I was.
