5 Ways to the Wonders of Sedona

A view typical of the landscapes surrounding Sedona, Ariz.
With its soaring red rocks, abundant sunshine, and expansive open spaces, Sedona, Arizona, is a natural playground beckoning guests to go out and have an adventure.
Located in the heart of Sedona, Hyatt Vacation Club Sedona, Piñon Pointe, offers an ideal base for exploring one of the most beautiful places in Arizona. There are many ways for visitors to experience Sedona’s unique landscape. Here are a few outdoor adventures not to be missed.*

Vortex Vibes

Sedona is often thought to be a spiritual, healing place. This is partially due to the belief of some that there’s a unique energy swirling about specific spots in Sedona. These are known as “vortexes,” and Sedona has seven recognized sites. Some people have reported tingling sensations and amplified emotion at these locations, where the trees often grow in spirals instead of straight. These anomalies are widely attributed to the vortexes.

One of the best ways to experience a vortex site is during a hike. For an easy to moderate walk, head to Bell Rock and choose the 4.2-mile Courthouse Butte Loop Trail.* Bell Rock is one of Sedona’s best-known vortex spots and is a popular place to meditate. If you hike in the morning, you can end at Red Rock Cafe, a well-known breakfast spot.

Slippin’ ‘n Slidin’

Slide Rock State Park features one of the most beautiful swimming holes in the United States.* Just 7 miles outside Sedona, it features a natural waterslide that descends Oak Creek gradually. While the rocks and boulders have smoothed over with time, it’s still wise to wear shorts rather than a bathing suit and old tennis shoes or water shoes.

Wild West

View the Wild West the way its first settlers saw it — with a horseback trail tour led by locals. Your concierge can recommend an outfitter. Get stellar views of the red rocks and wine country from the saddle, enjoying the serenity and peace that come from the outdoors. Guided tours take place on trails around the base of Horse Mountain in Echo Canyon and are typically customized to the experience level of the riders.*

Pedal Power

If you prefer the saddle of a bike, Sedona has you covered with some of the best mountain biking in the state. You’ll find a mix of trails for all levels. One popular mountain biking trail is the Bell Rock Pathway.* The 3.6-mile trail features views of Courthouse Butte, Bell Rock, Baby Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, and other landmarks. After the ride, reward yourself with a hearty lunch at Miley’s Cafe, another spot popular with locals.
Visit this historic city to discover the paths of its ancient inhabitants, mingle with its contemporary artists, and meditate among the spectacular red rocks after an invigorating hike.

Discover Wine in Arizona

Some say Sonoma, others say Sedona. Arizona might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of a wine-forward vacation, but Sedona — and the nearby Verde Valley — have become hot spots for the state's growing wine culture.

Winemaking in the Verde Valley dates back to the 17th century, but it's only been on the wine connoisseur's radar in the last decade. From your home base at Hyatt Vacation Club Sedona, Piñon Pointe, it's easy to make a day of wine tasting in nearby Cornville or Cottonwood — both are in close proximity to the resort.
