I led this hike for the Sierra Club as a through/shuttle hike from the top to the bottom. Early Saturday morning we drove up to Sedona and left two vehicles at the bottom of the Secret Canyon TH. We then drove up onto the Rim and setup our camp near the Secret Mountain TH. Early Sunday morning we scrambled down into the top of Secret Canyon and hiked through to the bottom. There isn't a trail in the first half and there are many obstacles and several areas that we needed the 20' sling for assisting with some down-climbs. This "A" 10-mile hike with -2,000 ft EC involved scrambling, rock-hopping and pushing through a lot of brush. With a very strong group of seven hikers, the first 5 miles took us about six and a half hours, while the next 5 (on trail) took only about two hours. After exiting the canyon we shuttled back to the top, broke camp and drove home. This was a very tough hike, with an incredibly long shuttle, but the rewards were tremendous. This is a spectacular canyon that few have been completely through from top to bottom.
