This is one of those hikes I've always wanted to do and finally got around to it. This was the third hike I would be doing in Sedona on this trip. I hit the trail and made good time to the arch. The views along the hike are spectacular! Sedona is truly magnificent!
I reached the Vultee Arch sign and then started heading up hill. Right away I noticed the arch off in the distance. It is higher up then I imagined. I continued following the trail to a nice viewpoint. There were two other people finishing up their snack. We had a short conversation and they departed. I enjoyed the views in all directions. After a few minutes I stared back as well. It was easy going on the return trip.
I wanted to do one more hike afterward and was considering my options. My original plan was to hike Wilson Mtn but I wasn't motivated for a 2,500 gain. I decided on Bell Trail along Wet Beaver Creek over by the I-17. This got me out of Sedona and a little closer to Phx for one more easy hike.
