Bear Mountain

Bear Mountain

  • P.O. Box 300
  • Boynton pass Road, at the 8.9 mile point.
  • tel:520 282 4119
  • Sedona, 86339-0330

This trail begins with a hike up and over red rock, which lays in the trail like a turtle the size of a large house. Large expanses of beautiful open land, west of Sedona, reveal the green trees surrounding the Verde Valley flowing beneath the Black Hills mountain range. It's a spectacular site. Once the trail begins to wind up Bear Mountain, the view of Sedona at a distance makes for post-card quality panoramic photos. Though the Bear Mountain Trail is rewarding, it is a strenuous hike with little shade. Bring plenty of water. At the junction of Routes 89A and 179, take 89A west 3.2 miles to Dry Creek Road on the right. Go. 2.9 miles to a "T" and turn left on Boynton Pass Road. Go 1.6 miles to another "T" and turn left onto FR 152C. Continue for 1.2 miles to the trailhead parking area on the left. Cross the street to the trailhead. read more about Bear Mountain

If you want to eat where the locals eat, head straight to The Coffee Pot, a down-home breakfast and lunch diner that is famous for its breakfasts and notably generous large servings. Named for the imposing coffee pot-shaped rock formation located behind the restaurant, the "home of the famous 101 omelettes" also happens to serve up a mean lunch platter. Choose from a large selection of sandwiches, salads, and Mexican specialties. The Coffee Pot  has been a local Sedona landmark for decades, and recently expanded a bit with an outdoor patio and kids menu. There is also a gift shop stocked with knick-knacks.

Tlaquepaque

Tlaquepaque

This open-air shopping center is modeled after a picturesque Mexican village and named after the artisan suburb outside Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. In Sedona, Tlaquepaque happens to be one of the top tourist attractions in town, drawing a steady stream of visitors to the sprawling, hacienda-like structure lined with cobblestone and decorated with whimsical statuary and fountains. You'll find dozens of high-end galleries, jewelry stores, boutiques, restaurants, and a small chapel. The stucco walls are covered over with crawling vines and flower pots are tucked into every corner and decorative terrace. Undoubtedly one of the more romantic shopping centers in town, Tlaquepaque is also a working artisan community where you may catch a glimpse of artists at work.
