Wheelin in Sedona Christmas Weekend

I'm going to be in the Sedona area, staying at 1000 Trails near Cottonwood, over Christmas weekend (12-21 to 12-26) and am bringing the Jeep along. Looking for directions/maps to the trails in the area, particularly Broken Arrow and similar trails and anybody who might be around that might like to get out wheelin, probably on Sunday and/or Monday. And are those annoying pink jeeps going to be out and getting in the way? Is it ok to just run them over?

I am heading back to Texas from Sedona today and did the exact same thing. I have had a great time here and the Pink jeeps are everywhere but the drivers are very courteous.

As far as directions, just go by Farabee's Jeep rentals and they will fix you up with all of the maps and directions you will need. They do rent jeeps but are more than happy to help anyone that comes by with their own rigs.

They were so helpfull that I will recommend them to anyone that is just wanting a day rental. The have all Red Rubicons for rental and you are free to use them on any of the local trails.

Good idea thanks. I know where Farabee's is, last time I was in Sedona I stopped and looked at a couple of Jeeps they had for sale, all 4-bangers with cheapo tires. Glad to see they finally got some good Jeeps. Wonder if it would be cheaper to rent one than tow mine, hmmm

They rent for about $100 1/2 day...with a coupon. When I was there last year, we rented one...they were auto's with a BB and 33" tires, but not re-geared. I really missed mine. They might be better now. There are alot of good trails. Stop by the ranger station to get your pass and maps. Have fun.

Like was said earlier, just stop by Farabee's. Ask for Nena and she'll take care of you. She's a really nice lady and knows those trails like the back of her hand (she also owns the Sedona Jeep School http://www.sedonajeepschool.com/).

The Pink Jeep drivers are cool for the most part. Just use good etiquette and you should get along just fine.

Stop by www.virtualjeepclub.com and say hi. Nena is a member there and there are some other Sedona folk that are members. I think there might even be a couple people planning on a run up in Sedona that weekend. You might be able to hook up on some trails.

Since you're staying in Cottonwood I would recommend a day trip to Jerome. It's a beautiful old town up on the side of Mingus Mountain. Stop by the Haunted Hamburger for great food and to see one of the best sunsets that you'll ever see. Not to mention that there is some good wheeling on Mingus too. See if Nena has maps to Smiley Rock and some other trails up there.

Hey thanks, we'll stop by Farabees' on Saturday and hopefully meet Nena. I'm hoping we'll see some other Jeepers on the trails, but those pink Jeeps, they're like Ant's ... everywhere.

Last year we went to Tuzigoot and then drove up to Jerome and had lunch at Haunted Hamburgerr, they have great fries :-), it's on the to do list for this weekend. Didn't get many other places on Mingus, it was pretty snowy and cold last year, and I was with the folks, but I did see some some interesting looking side roads. Hopefully we can get up there and wander around some more.

Thanks again for the info
