The Little Horse Trail will take you about 2 miles into the Sedona wilderness for a complete round trip of about 3.5 miles. The trail offers a little bit of everything — winding streams, deep canyons, and towering red rock formations. During some parts of the year, you’ll hike by expansive fields of wildflowers tucked among canyons and rocky terrain.
This is a fun trail because it offers easy hiking with a couple of stretches where a bit more effort is required. It is also the perfect way to spend a day with your dog, as your furry friends are admitted onto the trail as long as they are on a leash.
You can access the Little Horse Trail through the trailhead that is just east of Highway 179. Travel down the highway about 3.6 miles south of 89A, Highway 179 junction.
