Northern Arizona features many different beautiful cities that you can easily explore during your stay with us in Sedona. Jerome is one city you will never forget! During the turn of the century, Jerome had the largest copper mine in the country and was a bustling town of more than 12,000 people. Known as a “ghost town” and celebrated for its claim as one of the most haunted towns in America, Jerome boasts a haunted theme throughout its hillside shops and restaurants and even offers ghost tours for those brave souls! Due to its fascinating landscape and history, it is no surprise that it was chosen by filmmakers and film lovers to host the annual Jerome Indie Film & Music Festival.  This festival highlights some of the top indie films that have recently been released. If you love films, (and don’t mind a few ghosts) this town and festival are the perfect reason to schedule your vacation getaway!

Arizona is home to a variety of natural beauty that can be accessed year-round, and Sedona has its fair share. Our Arizona town is located in a picturesque setting that awes visitors and locals year after year. The gorgeous red peaks rise in the backdrop while tall trees cover the landscape. Sedona is not your usual Arizona location in that it features all four seasons during the year. Fall is one of our favorite times of year, as you can see the leaves on trees change from their lush green to a dark hue of red and orange. The best location around Sedona to see the leaves change color is off the West Fork Trail.

Top 10 Trail in the Country

Visitors come from all over the country to see the beauty of Sedona in person. You will be pleased to know that West Fork has been named one of the top 10 hiking trails in the country. Everything you could want from an expedition into the wilderness can be accessed with a hike on the West Fork Trail. This popular route is approximately 7 miles in length and is a relatively easy trail. The elevation gain is only around 800 feet, so you will not find any steep inclines. Instead, what you will find is a windy trail through majestic trees and brush. Your hike will come across multiple river crossings that you can cross with ease on logs and steppingstones. Finally, at the end of your journey you will find an elegant pool of water that is encased in rising cliffs. No wonder it has been named a top 10 trail in the United States!

Colors All Around You at the West Fork Trail

As mentioned, the West Fork Trail features all kinds of trees and plant life found along your hike. The hike is especially popular in the fall with the many leaves changing color into vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds. In fact, this trail is the most popular area in Sedona to see these fall colors come out. Due to its popularity, we recommend checking it out during the week when there will be fewer crowds. If you do visit during the weekend, make sure you get there early to claim a nearby parking spot!
