Distance : 5 miles, Approx 3 hrs
Climb the north face of Wilson Mountain, the highest in the area. You can see Encinoso Waterfall if there is spring runoff or a hard rain at the .25 mile mark. Continue on up another .75 miles of tree covered forest, where you will then hike a half mile of steep, narrow, scree covered trail. After this hard part of the trail, you are rewarded with outstanding views of Mount Humphrey north of Flagstaff and the entire Sedona area just a few yards beyond the end of the trail. We measured a 1585 ft elevation change.
