This is a easy hike for anyone to enjoy! You are surrounded by all of Sedonas formations during this hiking location plus the ground is most smooth red dirt. You can close your eyes and take in the fresh air circulating through your body and the pine it's very energizing.

Expand your hike by rounding Courthouse Butte via Courthouse Butte Loop Trail. This leads you completely around Courthouse Butte letting you see it from all sides. Also leads to a cool red dome rock on the northeast side of Courthouse Butte - great place to snap pics of Courthouse Butte, Bell Rock, and Baby Bell. If you are really feeling tough, head to the top of Bell Rock or Courthouse Butte on the many trails that wind up the formations.

Hike to Fay Canyon Arch

Arizona / Fay Canyon Trail

...The hike through Fay Canyon goes 1.25 miles to Box Canyon and is rated easy to moderate. To see Fay Canyon Arch though is a much shorter hike. From Boynton Pass Rd, park at Fay Canyon parking lot.

...For this very short stroll to Elephant Arch, I'd like to clarify that it's more of a sightseeing and/or photo opportunity trip than a hiking trip.
