1843: Red Rock Vistas and Vortices

Date and Time

Saturday, October 13, 2018 - Sunday, October 21, 2018


Other U.S.,


Registration is required for this activity. Please contact leader(s).


Come hike with us among the spectacular sandstone formations that have drawn nature lovers, artists, spritual seekers, and even movie directors to the Red Rock area of Sedona. We'll walk in the footsteps of John Wayne and Jimmy Stuart, discover the ruins of ancient cliff dwellers, and explore the vortices that many believe are centers of the earth's energy. You don't need to be a mystic or a fan of Westerns to be amazed by the beauty of Cathedral Rock, charmed by the whimsical Coffee Pot Rock, and energized by the variety of hikes and vistas. We'll stay in a comfortable, centrally located hotel or condos (2 persons to a room) and share our experiences over group dinners. Most hikes will be moderate in difficulty and length (5-8 miles) with some easier half day hikes days when we visit archeological sites and at least one more challenging optional hike.
