This was recommended as an easy hike. I tried it out so I could introduce my wife to hiking. It is very flat and shaded alongside a dry river bed. I didn’t find the scenery interesting until the end on the canyon. This will not...More

Fay Canyon Trail is just five miles from downtown Sedona, yet relatively peaceful and underappreciated. The trail is just over a mile in and back on relatively level, well maintained trails into quiet and wooded Fay Canyon. About 0,4 miles in, to your right (north...More

This is a easy out & back trail with shade. Climb up the rocks at the end and turn around. Great view of red rock in distance.

We hiked on an unusually hot day in May and were glad for the occasional shade. It's a straight hike to the end and back, relatively flat. The views were definitely worth it!

Great little hike, with amazing views. April 2018 yielded no waterfall, but a great hike, that didn't take all day. Met a couple who just got engaged on the trail. Serene beauty. This is good for the whole family!!!

This was a short hike and not as exciting as the other hikes we took. A good trail for those who don't want to go on a hike that is difficult.

This is the perfect hike. Easy parking with a bathroom at the trailhead. Partial shade throughout the hike. Keep going after the maintained path ends and shimmy up the rocks for a phenomenal view of the canyon. We searched for the arch on our way...More

We were looking for a quick hike before we spend the rest of the day shopping and be back in time for a 3:00 massage so our Inn owners recommended Fay Canyon Trail. It was perfect. If you hike fast you can get in and...More
