Sedona’s highest point is our most challenging Sedona day hike and provides one of the best opportunities for landscape photos. We begin our hike in Oak Creek Canyon and scramble our way 1500 feet up North Wilson Trail to the Wilson Bench. The south side of Wilson bench offers breathtaking views of Mitten Ridge, uptown Sedona, Munds Mountain Wilderness, and more. We’ll continue up another 700 feet to the north end of Wilson Mountain and its panoramic views into the heart of Sedona’s red rock country. We’ll enjoy a picnic lunch from the top, overlooking Sedona’s breathtaking Red Rock landscapes, then return the way we came. If the snow is melting or it’s just rained, a waterfall just east of our trailhead is also an amazing site!
