Sedona, Arizona

Sedona is a city that straddles the county line between Coconino and Yavapai counties in the northern Verde Valley region of the Arizona. As of the 2010 census, its population was 10,031. It is within the Coconino National Forest.

Sedona's main attraction is its array of red sandstone formations. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The red rocks form a popular backdrop for many activities, ranging from spiritual pursuits to the hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails.

Conversations/Things we learned:

This city offers a very nice downtown area which is a bit touristy. However, the massive sandstone formations along with hiking and ATV trails throughout the valley offers speracular views.

This is a location you should put in your itinerary when visiting Arizona. Make sure you bring good walking shoes, sunscreen, and plenty of water as this location gets very hot during the daytime.

Contact Information:

Visitor Center is at 331 Forest Road. Staff and volunteers will assist visitors every day 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
