Verde Canyon Railroad

Verde Canyon Railroad

Verde Canyon RailroadTake a ride on the Verde Canyon Railroad, Arizona’s longest-running nature show. The railroad meanders through the inner sanctum of Arizona’s other “grand canyon,” where each season creates a new reason to ride. Splendid vistas and centuries-old Indian ruins are around the bend as the train pulls away from remnants of a mining era which helped establish neighboring communities. Make sure to spend some time out in their open air cars and witness the abundant wildlife in the area including the American Bald Eagle. Travelers catch the train at the depot near Clarkdale, which is about 40 minutes southwest of the home. For more information, visit Verde Canyon Railroad for tickets and pricing.

A Great Hike on Bell Rock Pathway

A Great Hike on Bell Rock Pathway

Short, sweet and simply stunning, the Bell Rock Pathway may be the most popular trail and one of the easiest of all the walk-ways and hikes in the Sedona area. Bell Rock, so named because the shape resembles that of a large bell, stands adjacent to Courthouse Butte and both, typically in tandem, are frequently the object of photographers and artists. The location also enjoys significant popularity as one of Sedona’s vortex sites.

The trail is wide, hard-packed with few if any hazards, easy to follow, and only 3.5 miles round trip, which for most (even us old fogies), can be accomplished in about an hour, packing a lot of scenic red rock punch for the time spent. The pathway heads out directly toward Bell Rock and through some beautiful upland desert—stands of juniper with a few pinon pine mixed in, yucca and agave, and thickets of manzanita. Bird song rings out from every direction and it’s not uncommon to rustle up a covey or two of Gambel’s quail scurrying for cover.

Golfing in Sedona

Golfing in Sedona

Canyon Mesa provides the perfect recreational complement to the beautiful red rocks of Sedona. It’s a nine-hole executive gem that caters to every type of golfer. Tucked quaintly away in a corner of the Village of Oak Creek just 8 miles south of Sedona on Hwy. 179, Canyon Mesa is ideal for novices and yet challenging enough for the more experienced. Due to its short length — it averages just 140 yards a hole from the white tees — Canyon Mesa is perfect for those just learning the game. But its narrowness and difficult greens makes it challenging for long-time golfers working on “target golf”. Canyon Mesa is also the best public golf value in Sedona.

Canyon Mesa Country Club caters to these golfers

  • seniors: who don’t hit the ball as far as they used to love our shorter course
  • women & couples: like the compactness of Canyon Mesa without the standard long holes,
  • families: where one or more might be “learners” intimidated by a championship course
  • golfers on a budget: players who like to spend $25 on 18 holes, not $100+
  • serious golfers: who want to work on their “short game”
  • time limited: golfers who don’t have 4 to 6 hours to play can finish 9 holes in 1 1/2 hours or less and 18 holes less than 3 hours
