Overview

Great views hiking along the edges of several canyons and washes, making use of several marked trails in the area. The narrow singletrack high on the edge of Dry Creek provides some great views, but can be exposed if there's a fear of heights.

Description

set off from the parking lot at the Sedona Cultural center and follow the Outer Limits trail and then Ledge-n-airy, skirting an edge above Dry Creek. When Ledge-n-airy joins Outer Limits again, continue downhill on Outer Limits to cross Dry Creek.

Continue through several zig-zags and take a right on Last Frontier trail. Follow Last Frontier for approximately 2.2 miles to make a right on Bolo Trail. Head downhill on Bolo to Axis, and continue downhill to make a right on Girder to get back to the parking lot.
