Honanki Indian Ruins (Heritage Site)

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 Sedona Hiking Guide which is available here.

Summary:  The Honanki Indian Ruins are considered to be one of the finest ruins in the Sedona area.

Challenge Level:  Easy

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

Trailhead Location:  The parking area is off of FR 525, which can be very rough. A high-clearance vehicle is recommended.

Description: The Pink Jeep Company manages The Honanki site so there aren't any volunteers or rangers stationed there (like at Palatki) and you are on your own to wander through the site. There is a metal rail fence to keep unauthorized folks out but you are very close to the structures. You may have some Jeep tours going through the site at the time you are there. The Pink Jeep Company asks that you not interfere with the tours.
