GREAT SEDONA HIKES

Lost Canyon Hike

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:  A scenic hike to an overlook of some Indian Ruins

Challenge Level:  Moderate

Hiking Distance:  About 1 1/4 mile each way, 2 1/2 miles round trip

Trailhead Location:  The parking area is located on FR 152. FR 152 can be extremely rough so a high clearance vehicle is recommended. The trailhead is shared with the west end of the Brins Mesa Trail. Hike the Brins Mesa Trail for about 225 feet ( 75 paces) and turn right on to the Lost Canyon Trail.

Description:  You'll be climbing from altitude about 4600 feet to 5000 feet for this hike. The overlook where you can see the Indian Ruins below is pretty spectacular. The red rock views along the trail are very nice. We hiked a little further than the Indian Ruins and the trail continues toward Devil's Bridge.
