Another one from the backlog... Headed up to Sedona with no real plan, and decided to revisit Secret Canyon trail (this was one of my first hikes in the Sedona area something like 5 years ago). Secret Canyon is an underrated little canyon, with nice vegetation, cool red rock formations, and sheer cliffs on the south side.

The previous outing, I didn't make it all the way to the narrows, so that was a nice treat. Cool little spot, but I wouldn't say it's a must-see.

The highlight of the trail ended up being the arch about a quarter mile off the trail, 1.5 miles past the David Miller junction. This isn't labeled on any of the official maps I've seen, but the trail is on Open Street Maps as "Secret Canyon Arch." It's a little rough, with a steep climb up some slickrock, but the arch is well worth it, and my favorite arch I've found in Sedona.

Might be fun to try and go all the way up the canyon, and connect with Loy Canyon or something.
