Sedona, Arizona is known for its healing earth vortexes. Yes, they say vortexes, not vortices. Anyway, a vortex is believed to be a special spot on earth where energy is entering it or exiting it. Sedona has four vortexes, one of which is Bell Rock.
As a result, Bell Rock, located just north of the Village of Oak Creek, is an extremely popular hiking destination and easily reachable off scenic Highway 179. With spring break in full swing for many states and the popularity of Bell Rock, I arrived to the large, paved parking lot by 7:15am on a weekday. Fortunately, I had a prime selection of spots with only a few cars in the parking lot.HAPPY HIKING!
