Cactus to Clouds

Are you ready for our Classic Cactus to Clouds hike?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stand with the clouds at the summit of that seemingly unreachable peak? Throughout much of Sedona's winter and rainy season, Munds Mountain Wilderness, secretively hides itself in the clouds above the dry desert below. This inspiring physical experience, is one of Sedona's most challenging feats, and has been used by our staff to prepare for Rim-to-Rim hikes and larger objectives for years.  

The trail will continuously gain elevation from the first step on, and later delivers you to one of the most impressive panoramic views of Arizona you can find anywhere. The trail transcends the desert biosphere and climbs to the outermost edge of the Colorado Plateau. Along the way, you can expect to see a vast array of evolved creatures that survive in the Transition Zone of mixed desert and pine forest. 

Prepare yourself for a huge day and take a dreamy walk with us into the clouds--for an adventure you will never forget!!!
