Best Activities in Sedona

Sedona is well-known for its hiking, with access to hundreds of trails right near the downtown area. From beginning trails that require little elevation gain but still reward with big views, to challenging trails that will test your endurance and lead to dramatic lookouts and natural stone arches, it’s no wonder that this area is known as one of the top hiking destinations in the country. This Labor Day weekend in Sedona, grab a few friends or family members, pack plenty of water and your camera, and set out on one of the many picturesque hiking trails situated conveniently in Sedona!

If you want to appreciate the scenery but aren’t keen on the physical exertion it will require, consider heading out on a Jeep® or ATV tour instead. Several outfitters in town boast tours that will get you off-road and on a scenic adventure, all from the relative comfort of your vehicle. Many tours entail more than simply driving over dirt roads through the desert – they tackle truly rugged, rocky terrain, adding an element of excitement! Backcountry views and Sedona’s iconic red-rock formations become the backdrop for this thrilling adventure.

Cool off during the final days of summer with a refreshing dip. In Sedona, a swim is much more scenic and special than hopping in the neighborhood swimming pool. Consider heading to one of Sedona’s natural swimming holes to swim, picnic, and sunbathe this Sedona Labor Day weekend! While some require just a short walk from the parking area, others are more secluded and require a hike to reach. Midgely Bridge has deep areas for swimming as well as large, flat rock sections along the side for picnicking and sunbathing. Slide Rock State Park is another favorite, with mini cascades and natural water slide chutes great for kids.
