Deadman's Pass Hike


When we were in Sedona we did many hikes. It is a hikers dream come true... so many great trails in the gorgeous red rocks.

One of the hikes I was most excited about with the Birthing Cave. We didn't make it. We started at the Mescal trail too late in the evening. I did learn that you should start at the Long Canyon Trail head.

We ended up hiking for about an hour, at sunset, on Deadman's Pass. It was so beautiful.

These red rock walls were on our left as we started the hike.

This hike gets a 8/10

1 Destination We didn't make it to our destination, it is a nice trail
1 Time on trial I was on the trail just under an hour, you can turn around anytime

I don't know if I would drive all the way out to Boynton Canyon area to hike just this trail. I would do this trail again in combination with another hike in the area!

Hiking in Sedona is really amazing!
