Hiking in Sedona is truly magical. It has the power to transform a trip into a wonderful lasting memory with family so why not go for a hike while you are in town. Although I am not an expert hiker I appreciate the time I can enjoy a hike with my family.
So if you are open to suggestions, here is this easy hike with family in West Sedona.
Let’s start with the closest hike to Simon’s
Coffee Pot Rock Trail
This easy trail takes you to the base of Coffee Pot Rock.
From the junction of Routes 89A and 179, take 89A west 2 miles to Coffee Pot Drive on the right. Go .5 miles to Sanborn Drive on the left, then .2 miles to Little Elf Drive on the right. Go .2 miles to the end of Little Elf and turn right on Buena Vista Drive left to the trail-head parking area.
I love this easy trail because the view is beautiful and can be enjoyed by the whole family included children and pets; this track is shared by two others paths Sugar loaf and Teacup. Coffee Pot is not an official forest trail but is not difficult to find it, follow the teacup trail all the way to the split that is not marked, turn right and walk a little further and you will find the base of the towering Coffee Pot Rock.
From the parking lot to the base of Coffee Pot Rock is about 1 mile, total hike approx 2 miles.
If you and your family are not tired yet climb to the top of Sugar loaf, the view is really cool!
