Spring is a fantastic time to explore Sedona’s entrancingly beautiful landscapes—and to revel in the luxury hospitality we specialize in here at Sky Rock! Here’s but a brief overview of some ways to experience this seductive season during a Sky Rock Sedona getaway.

Outdoor Activities

Spring weather here in the Verde Valley—in that gorgeous transition zone where the Mogollon Rim bridges the Colorado Plateau and the Basin-and-Range deserts to the south—tends to be absolutely ideal for outdoor activities. Sky Rock Sedona provides an unparalleled jumping-off point for these immersions in our dreamlike terrain, whether leisurely, slow-paced sightseeing or high-adrenaline adventure.

Sedona offers some of the best hiking in the country, given the ease of access to the trails from town and the absolute splendor of the scenery. Take advantage of the easy, family-friendly, and lovely trails of Red Rock State Park along Oak Creek, for example—linked to Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood via the 15-mile-long Lime Kiln Trail—or farther upstream in the famous Oak Creek Canyon at Slide Rock State Park. Fabulous backcountry routes await in the Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness. Take the Boynton Canyon Trail to drink up some truly incredible vistas, including the iconic Boynton Canyon Spire.

Or take to the region’s equally celebrated mountain-biking trails—some 250 miles of them—from Hogs and Hangover to the Last Frontier.

Then there’s spring kayaking on the Verde River, and Slickrock safaris via ATV, jeep, and horseback. Climbers find dazzling routes on cliff faces and pinnacles, while birdwatchers find rich picking among both year-round resident species and many migrants flushing through this time of year. (If you are a birder, don’t miss the Verde Valley Birding & Nature Festival in March, by the way!)

Other Spring Activities in Sedona

Spring’s also perfect for visiting Sedona’s wineries and tasting rooms, explore the vibrant and diverse dining scene, go art gallery-hopping, and partake of some retail therapy at shopping destinations such as Hillside Sedona (671 AZ-179) and the Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village (336 State Route 179). The fine weather also makes spring a great time to engage in outdoor yoga, meditation, and other mind-body-spirit-minded activities amid the red rocks—including at those energetically primed vortex sites of Bell Rock, Boynton Canyon, Airport Mesa, and Cathedral Rock.
