Soldier Pass

This is a fun day drip from Sedona. The parking lot at the trailhead is very small, so ATVs and UTVs will find it difficult to park and stage.

Trail Overview

This will be a quick, fun trip. Great rock obtacles and even better views make it worth an afternoon. If you want to hike, you won't be disappointed. There is a very popular hiking trail along this route.


Difficult: Very tight in places with several steep, ledgy climbs. Stock SUVs need very high ground clearance. New vehicles with shiny paint jobs beware of scratchy brush.
