Take a Hike


Although our hike this month measures only 4.5 miles, the route takes us up an elevation gain of 1,365’.  We’ll hike to the first “bench” of Bear Mountain in Sedona, then take a side trail to a surprising spot known as Bootleggers Cave.  Bring a good lunch, plenty of water, your trekking poles, and binoculars if you wish.  The views are fantastic.  Let’s go!
