Granite Mountain

Arizona: Grand Canyon and Sedona Trails

Explore the stunning natural highlights of Northern Arizona and visit several picturesque adventure towns on this seven day drive and hike. Revel in the incredible views of the iconic Grand Canyon as you walk along the rim and into the depths of the canyon itself, and learn about the fascinating geology and history of the area. Hike through the gorgeous red rock desert and juniper trees of Sedona, and explore the peaceful aspen groves just outside of Flagstaff on the flanks of Arizona's tallest mountain, Humphrey's Peak. Stroll through the downtown area of the quaint town of Prescott before venturing below the craggy face of aptly named Granite Mountain, the town's iconic landmark. From deep canyons, to soaring mountains, to modern towns, and everything in between, this week-long road trip truly offers the best of this Southwestern state.
