If you come to Sedona to enjoy the beautiful red rocks or to experience a vortex or two, you are not alone. Hiking in the red rocks accounts for the majority of Sedona visitors' aspirations and it's estimated that about half of the visitors to Sedona want to experience a vortex.

It is imperative to have the latest trail information to help you maximize your Sedona experience. To accomplish that, we've developed several items to make sure you are fully prepared for your adventure. They are:

 

HIKING GUIDES

 

Great Sedona Hikes Revised Fourth Edition Edition,  a hiking guidebook containing the 65 best hikes in Sedona

 

 

For those looking for complete, detailed information on hiking the best Sedona trails, we have published a revised fourth edition of our hiking guide Great Sedona HikesOur print-on-demand format ensures that the copy you receive reflects the latest trail conditions. Other hiking books are produced by the thousands in China, then stored awaiting resale and quickly become out-of-date as changes to the trails occur. And we have a Kindle Edition also available. Here's a preview of the Kindle Edition.....

 

 

 

We've hiked and evaluated virtually every Sedona hiking trail and the guide contains information on the best 65 trails. We've included:

 

 

 

 

The included trail maps are accurate because they are based on the actual GPS "tracks" of the trails. The Sedona hiking trails and parking areas are constantly changing but our hiking guide is up-to-date. We hike every week so we are familiar with the latest trail conditions and we update the guide as needed. For example, we updated the guide in November 2017.

VORTEX GUIDES

 

    Hiking the Vortexes - Color Edition is an easy-to-use guide to finding and understanding Sedona's vortexes

Over one half of Sedona's visitors have heard of the vortex energy from vortexes (vortices) in and around Sedona. Hiking the Vortexes - Color Edition is the most practical and up-to-date guide to reveal the locations of Sedona's vortexes and power spots. It is printed and bound in the USA and contains background information on vortexes, how to prepare yourself for your vortex experience, and a master map to their locations. Individual detailed maps complete with GPS waypoints make it easy to drive to the parking areas for each of Sedona's four main vortexes. After you park, individual trail maps (based on actual GPS tracks) and beautiful full color photographs guide you to these four well-known vortexes. It was updated in August 2017

As an added bonus, ten other "power spots" where vortex energy has been discovered are identified and directions to each are included.

If you want to find the best-known and least-known Sedona vortexes, and have a chance to experience their magic and power, this book is for you.

The price of Hiking the Vortexes Color Edition is $13.95 and is available by clicking here

 

 

We also offer the same vortex information in a black and white (non color) version. The difference is the photographs and maps as illustrated below. When people look at the two editions side-by-side they usually prefer the color edition because of the beautiful color photographs and maps. But the black and white version may meet your needs.

Color Edition                    Black and White Version

 

 

 

Hiking the Vortexes (black and white version) contains the same information as the color edition above, but without the color. If you are on a budget or beautiful color photos and maps aren't worth the few extra dollars, then by all means buy the black and white edition. Because the two editions have the same content, the black and white version also  contains background information on vortexes, how to prepare for your vortex experience, and a master map to their locations. Individual detailed maps complete with GPS waypoints make it easy to drive to the parking areas for each of Sedona's four main vortexes. After you park, individual trail maps (based on actual GPS tracks) and photographs guide you to these four well-known vortexes.

As an added bonus, ten other "power spots" where vortex energy has been discovered are identified and directions to each are included.

If you want to find the best-known and least-known Sedona vortexes, and have a chance to experience their magic and power, this budget-priced book is for you. This edition is also printed and bound in the USA and was updated in August 2017.

 

The cost of Hiking the Vortexes (black and white edition) is $10.95 and is available by clicking here
