On one of our “adventure days” up north we wanted to get a peek at Long Canyon Trail in Sedona. However, Long Canyon is an out and back trail. We were looking to do a loop so you never see the same bit of trail twice. We ended up catching a tiny bit of Long Canyon, and then connected it to both Deadmans Pass and Mescal Trails (Mescal Trail connects Deadmans Pass and Long Canyon Trails). I absolutely loved this loop combination. It worked out to be around 5 miles in total which was just perfect for our youngest (reluctant) hiker. And just like every single trail I’ve hiked in Sedona – the views were breathtaking.
