Hiking Broken Arrow Trail, Sedona, Arizona

Broken Arrow Trail, just outside of Sedona, Arizona, is an easy 3 1/2 mile (round trip) hike through the beautiful red rock scenery of the transition zone, where the Sonoran Desert meets the ponderosa pine forests of Northern Arizona.

With a roughly 2 hour drive from the Phoenix area, this will be a full-day trip for valley dwellers, but if you live or intend to stay near Sedona, Broken Arrow Trail makes for a great morning or afternoon hike, taking about 2.5 hours to complete. That is, if you don't get distracted by the amazing, bright red cliffs and rock formations.

Along the way, you will find the Devil's Dining Room Sinkhole about .6 miles into the hike, Chicken Point at 1.5 miles, and Submarine Rock 2 miles in. This trail is not shaded, though, and will get very hot later into spring and summer, so grab a water bottle and get out there before the heat rolls in.

Bonus: If you're looking to stay off your feet, take your mountain bike or go 4-wheeling alongside the main trail in your own vehicle or with a tour group, such as Pink Jeep Tours.
