Overview

The Dogie Trail offers hikers and horsebackers a chance to experience the scenic views of the famous red rocks surrounding Sedona without all of the visiting crowds.

Need to Know

Make sure you take lots of water for this hike especially during late spring to early fall months. Temperatures quite often exceed 110 degrees in the canyon bottom.

Description

The trail snakes into the heart of the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness connecting to the Taylor Cabin Trail after approximately 5.5 miles. The trail begins at the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness boundary, at a saddle several hundred yards from where you should park your vehicle.

Expect panoramic views as the trail descends from the saddle and follows hilly contours, with each turn offering a slightly new host of plants and terrain. The trail frequently drops into washes only to climb back up the other side, so expect moderate and consistent ups and downs. Be prepared for a rugged, moderate-to-strenuous hike with unreliable sources of water and few spots for shade.
