5 Top Things To Do In Sedona, Arizona!

After 33 years of being a homegrown Cajun from Louisiana my wife and I decided it was time for a move. Her career aspirations were aggressive and after doing some digging she learned Arizona was exploding, particularly Phoenix, and in 2000, we found ourselves in our new home in our new state. I preferred to run and loved running trails which I did when I raced. You'd be hard-pressed to find amazing single-track in SouthWest Louisiana so the move to Arizona was a great fit. Fast-forward to 2022 and I can say I have scoured Central and Northern Arizona via trail running, camping, exploring, overlanding, and mountain biking.

Arizona has no shortage of epic places to visit with epic travel in between. The Grand Canyon (duh!), Mogollon Rim, Flagstaff, San Francisco Peaks, Crown King, Senator Highway, Perkinsville Highway, Jerome, Prescott, Payson, and the list goes on. One of my favorites is Sedona. Entering Sedona via AZ Hwy 179 the Red Rocks hit you as you round a corner just south of Oak Creek Village. From there the views just get more spectacular.

As with most visitors, they have a limited amount of time to explore the area. Most are only visiting for a day or two as they navigate to other areas of the state. To help with some of the decision-making Gear Werks has put together a list of top 5 things to do whilst visiting this incredible area. With the exception of two in this list I have done all of the others. For the remaining two, friends and family have participated in those and left with nothing but fabulous memories and experiences. So, what's in this list?
