RANCHO SEDONA RV PARKCampground & Day Trip Information
BROKEN ARROW TRAIL
We typically tow our Jeep with us while camping and especially to a place like Sedona. There are many off road trails and we 4×4’d the Broken Arrow Trail and it was definately an adventure. You will see so many Jeep tours on the trails so if you don’t own a Jeep, you can take a Jeep Tour or rent an offroad vehicle. I’m a scaredy cat so I got out of the Jeep a lot and took movies instead!
Submarine Rock – Broken Arrow Trail – Sedona
He made it up the hill … I just stopped the video too soon.
We hiked to Devils Bridge. We were lucky to have the Jeep as we could drive about a mile down the dirt road past the parking lot to the trailhead. Keep in mind it was mid August so it was pretty hot and cutting a mile off the hike was great. Make sure you take lots of water! It was a pretty easy hike until we got to the rock steps. It wasn’t too bad and I was able to do it, even though I don’t hike much. We got to the top and saw Devils Bridge. We didn’t go out on top of it, but just took a rest and people watched. Again, make sure you take a lot of water. There isn’t much shade either.
We visited the Honanki Ruin. It was amazing to see the ruins of where the Sinagua built their homes in the sides of the cliffs. We had wanted to first see the Palatki Ruins but they were closed. The Honanki Ruin is just a bit further down the dirt road. You can tour the site itself or pay for a interpretive guide.

OUTLAW AND DIAMOND BACK TRAILS
From the parking lot at Honanki Ruin, you can jump on the Outlaw Trail. We drove that trail and then jumped on the Diamond Back Trail. There isn’t shade to park under and take a break, so take a lot of water in the hot months!
