NOTE: The following summary information is to help with hike selection and is not intended to be used for hiking the trail. For your safety and enjoyment, please obtain a copy of Great Sedona Hikes hiking guide available HERE.
Summary: An in-town loop hike that skirts a subdivision, then provides nice views to the north
Challenge Level: Moderate
Hiking Distance: About a 4.5 mile loop
Trailhead Location: The parking area is located on SR 89A.
Description: The Soldier Wash trails were recently added to the Sedona trail system. They consist of a number of former mountain bike trails that were "adopted" by the Forest Service. From the parking area, follow the Adobe Jack Trail north. You'll intersect the Crusty Trail, Coyote Trail, Power Line Plunge Trail and then the Grand Central Trail. On the way you'll see homes to the west. Turn right on Grand Central and look to the north for some fine views. Continue on Grand Central until you intersect the Crusty Trail. Make a right here and return to the parking area.
Here's a link to a video of that hike (http://youtu.be/huwRBxblKN8).
For those of you who have a GPS unit, I have GPS data available for the hike which include "tracks," the route and waypoints.
