I was in Arizona for a tradeshow, and decided to take a small trip up north to Sedona for some good hiking prior to the show. We arrived in the late afternoon, so a four hour hike was very appropriate. We parked at the Long Canyon Trailhead, and took the Long Canyon Trail to the Deadman's Pass Trail, with a view of the beautiful scenery along the path. We then took the Mescal Trail up the mountain along the side of Mescal Mountain, and then along the rock around the arch of the mountain. We then took the Mescal Trail back to our car. This is a highly scenic route especially along the Mescal Trail, and is highly recommended.
