Amazing. We climbed from the bridge to the peak even though we hit 6 inches of snow in some parts. What a view. Saw three deer on the way back down. 6 hr, 9 miles and 2500 feet elevation gain.

A Great long hike with BEAUTIFUL views! I hiked Mount Wilson for the second times and I want to do as much as I can. The further I get in this trail the beautiful it gets, you can see everything from up there. I have my life there!

Hiked this trail by first following the branch that goes down by the creek/river, then took the branch that climbs the mountain. A well hiked trail with the usual rocks encountered on most Sedona trails. Views are nice at various points of the hike.

We did the north trail and went along Mount Wilson to the end of the trail. We skipped the Sedona overlook on this trip (we'll be doing this one again for sure). The trail was amazing with tons of colors. I highly recommend this one in fall.

This trail is fairly easy to follow. If you find yourself scrambling you are off the trail. It takes about 90 minutes of hiking time to get to the junction of Wilson Mt trail and the Wilson mt north trail. It takes 30 minutes from this spot to the vista junction. At the junction you can go to the Sedona... More

Amazing trail; In February, by choosing this trail, you will avoid the snow and icy cold water of West Fork trail. For us, we went to west fork trail, soaked our boots and returned to this trail to our utter astonishment. This trail is not for kids or faint of heart. It definitely has a steep climb, but then once... More

The entrance to the trail is easy to miss - so remember that it is from the parking lot just north of the only Dairy Queen you will see on highway 89A after Sedona Hiked in February, temperatures were decent and the views most remarkable, shade should be decent even in the dead of summer . I feel the ideal... More

Set aside about 6-7 hours to hike up Wilson Mountain. We hiked up a day after it rained, so the peak upper plain and top mesa had about 6-8 inches of snow. We were the first to hike up that day and so had to find the trail through the snow. Getting to the top was well worth it as... More

Wilson Mountain Trail is a gradual uphill climb through scenic views. Bring water... you can walk as far as you like, then turn back and return to the parking.
