Hello! If anyone would like to help give ideas on our upcoming trip itinerary, I’d greatly appreciate any input! My husband and I will be traveling from Ohio to Phoenix this Sat May 15-Sun May 23. It will be our first time to the southwest. We are hoping to do lots of hiking and exploring while enjoying an adults only getaway since we are leaving our 3 children (5,3, and 1) at home. I will be 22 weeks pregnant during the trip, but feel great and do not think that will give me many limitations besides not being able to do the Pink Jeep Tours or Hot Air Balloon rides. We will be flying in and out of Phoenix. Last 2 nights I booked in Scottsdale at a resort to relax and enjoy “doing nothing” before heading back home to our young kids!
Arrive 7:30 AM Sat May 15
Leave 11 AM Sun May 23
Sat May 15-Page
Sun May 16-Grand Canyon
Mon May 17-Village of Oak Creek
Tues May 18-Village of Oak Creek
Wed May 19-Uptown Sedona
Thu May 20-Uptown Sedona
Fri May 21-Scottsdale
Sat May 22-Scottsdale
From what I’ve been reading, we should plan to start our mornings in Sedona by being at the trail no later than 6:30AM if possible. Maybe pick one “popular” trail to do each of the 4 weekday mornings we will be there?
And then plan for shorter or shady trails if possible for the afternoon, such as Fay Canyon Trail one afternoon?
Thanks in advance for any tips and recommendations!
