Arizona Trip Itineraries

Kid Friendly Sedona

Destination(s): Sedona

Many vacationers with children try to pack Northern Arizona into a tight schedule, allowing only a few days for each hot spot: Sedona, Flagstaff, and the Grand Canyon. This trip guide is for those visitors with children eager to get the most out of only a few days. There is an epidemic sweeping the nation’s youth: Nature Deficit Disorder. Studies show that children today spend more time indoors than any other generation. That is why, this trip guide offers a lot of out-doors excursions that are easily accessible with breaks for parents to catch their breath. read more about Kid Friendly Sedona

West Fork Trail trail is popular among visitors because of its easy access, short distance, and beautiful scenery. Most of the trail runs along a quiet stream whose constant ripple reminds hikers they are not alone. Lizards, birds, squirrels and butterflies are among many of animals hikers are likely to see most of the year. In the summer and fall, when the sun begins to go down, look out for skunk! Towering canyon walls shade most of West Fork Trail, particularly in the beginning, resulting in dense forest and wonderful photographic opportunities. Hikers should be aware that the trail does cross the stream; although most of the year sure-footed hikers can cross and stay dry, hopping from rock to rock, during the monsoon season (July-August), crossing the stream might require hikers to get their feet wet. read more about West Fork Trail
