A very popular hiking destination in Sedona is called the Seven Sacred Pools. It is located in the Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness and may be reached by the Soldier Pass Trailhead or Jordan/Cibola Pass/Brins Mesa Trailhead.
Getting to Seven Sacred Pools
It is very hard to find parking at the Soldier Pass location, thus I started my hike at the Jordan/Cibola Pass/ Brins Mesa Trailhead.
This is a fee area ($5 daily, $15 weekly), and the machine takes credit cards if you do not have a National Parks Pass. Do not park on the side of the dirt road, or you will be ticketed! I heard you can pay a local to shuttle you to the trailhead, but I didn’t try this. I just got up early.HAPPY HIKING!
