Hi all,
I'm looking for a hike suggestion in Sedona AZ for mid-February. I will be there for a long weekend, and I can get away for one day (either Friday or Saturday). I have plenty of experience with multi-night backpacking in southern Utah canyon country, but haven't been south of the Grand Canyon before. I basically want something a little more ambitious than the kind of 2-mile out and back hikes the websites recommend - I was thinking more like 8-10+ miles. Kelsey's book lists three interesting hikes nearby but they all require wetsuits this time of year and... that's somewhat too advanced for me. I will have a car and am willing to drive an hour+ if need be. Also hoping to avoid too many crowds - not clear to me how popular Sedona is in February, but the weather is much milder than here in Minnesota, so I'm pretty excited to be there.
