GREAT SEDONA HIKES

GREAT SEDONA HIKES

Dogie Trail

Summary:  A hike in to Sycamore Canyon with views

Challenge Level:  Moderate to Hard

Hiking Distance:  Approximately 5 miles one way, but we hiked only 3 miles and then turned around for a total of 6 miles

Trailhead Directions:  The trail head for the Dogie Trail is about 20 miles from the center of Sedona, most of it on dirt roads (FR 525 connecting to FR 525C), a bit bumpy but very scenic. From the "Y" roundabout (the intersection of State Route 89A and State Route 179), drive west on SR 89A toward Cottonwood for approximately 9 1/2 miles. Turn right on to Forest Road 525 and proceed north for approximately 3 miles where you will come to a "t" intersection and FR 525 goes right. Turn left on FR 525C and follow it for about 8 1/4 miles to the trailhead parking on your right at GPS coordinates: 34 55.356' N; 111 59.688' W.

Description:  This hike is moderate to hard, and it certainly would be hard if you hike the entire 5+ miles down into Sycamore Canyon.  We hiked just 3 miles in, and would rate that as a moderate hike.  But it's a "down-up" hike (that is, descending trail on the way in, ascending on the return when you're getting tired), so use good judgment about when to turn around.
