Items to Enhance Your Sedona Hiking and Vortex Experience

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, I've developed several items to make sure you are fully prepared for your adventure. They are:

HIKING GUIDES

Sedona Hiking Guide,  a hiking guidebook containing 120 of best hiking trails and loop hikes in Sedona

For those looking for complete, detailed information on hiking the best Sedona trails, I have published a new hiking guide.  The 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 Other hiking books are produced by the thousands in China or Korea, then stored awaiting resale and quickly become out-of-date as changes to the trails occur. I also have a Kindle Edition available.

I've hiked and evaluated virtually every Sedona hiking trail and the guide contains information on the best 120 trails. I'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 my hiking guide is up-to-date. I hike every week so I am familiar with the latest trail conditions and I update the guide as needed. The guide was published on January 3, 2020.

The price of the Sedona Hiking Guide is $18.95

Sedona Hiking Guide Color Edition, a full color guidebook containing 120 hikes in Sedona

The color edition of the Sedona Hiking Guide includes all 120 hiking trails and loop hikes contained in the Sedona Hiking Guide. The difference is it's printed in beautiful color. Color costs a lot more to print than black and white so the price has to be higher. In order to keep the price as low as possible, it does not contain the extensive GPS coordinate data that the black and white edition contains. It contains color photos, updated trail descriptions, detailed maps including cumulative ascent data and trail elevation profiles. You'll find estimated driving and hiking times and trail popularity ratings. It includes QR Code links to additional color photos for each of the included hikes. My top 20 favorite Sedona hikes are featured among the 120 trails/loops

And like the black and white Sedona Hiking Guide above, Sedona Hiking Guide Color Edition, it is printed on-demand so it is always contains the latest trail conditions.

The price of the Sedona Hiking Guide Color Edition is $33.95

Sedona's Greatest Hikes a condensed full color hiking guide containing 55 of the best Sedona hiking trails and loop hikes

The Sedona's Greatest Hikes guidebook is a condensed version of the Sedona Hiking Guide Color Edition in order to make it more affordable. The hiking trails and loop hikes described in Sedona's Greatest Hikes are the same but the difference is there are only 55 of the best trails included rather than full 120. This guide is also print-on-demand so when I find it necessary to update the hiking guides because of trail changes, I update all affected hiking guides.

The Sedona's Greatest Hikes guidebook costs $19.95 and is available here.

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. I also have a Kindle Edition available.

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

I 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. I also have a Kindle Edition available.  

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