Because I am a slow learner,I have signed up to do another hiking guide for Menasha Ridge Press, this time covering Sedona and Flagstaff. (A couple of years ago I did one on the Tonto National Forest and the HAZsters were extremely helpful!)
The rough itinerary is
May/June : Sedona (except for Oak Creek hikes)
June - August : Flagstaff
September: Sedona - Oak Creek Hikes (and whatever else in tha area I couldn't get to).
What I'd appreciate from you fine folks is suggestions for non-obvious hikes that you would like to see included.
My Sedona hikelist goes like this (more or less by priority):Sedona area:
Brin Mesa/Soldier Pass
Cathedral Rock (& Templeton trail)
Bell Rock loop (I haven't really narrowed this down)
Munds Wagon Trail
Red Rock State Park
Caroll Canyon LoopRed Rock/Secret Mountain
Bear Sign/Secret canyon
Sterling Oak Creek Area
West Fork (publisher mandates!)
Harding / CookstoveIn the Area
Bell trail (done!)
Woods canyon Trail
Verde River Trail
Woodchute Trail (on Mingus Mtn)
That's 25 hikes, if you're counting. If I get 18 of them, then I am in good shape (so to speak).
I'll noodle out a Flag list y the end of the month, but we're getting Sedona trails before they start to cook.
Need t eb able to reach the TH in a passenger vehicle.
The format is aimed at half-day hikers. Some of the adventure loops we did for the Tonto guide would be right out.
Any input s appreciated.
Soldier Pass/Brin Mesa is happening tomorrow.
