Hiking In Sedona? Check Out The Fay Canyon Trail
I’ve been through a few trail hiking in Sedona in the past and the sight of the canyons never cease to amaze me. Geologists believe that these canyons were formed by a collision of the Pacific and North American plates in the West Coast. Rivers and tributaries then carved the canyons through time into the beauty that it appears today. The Fay Canyon trail is a short hike at around 1.2 miles but it’s popular with the locals and visitors alike. The fairly easy flat hike gives a lot of scenic views from the trailhead to the surrounding cliffs at the end of the trail. Immerse yourself with the best of nature’s gifts to mankind.
