Broken Arrow Trail

Monday, May 13, 2019

Alt Names

Broken Arrow, Coconino National Forest, Red Rock Ranger District, Devil’s Dining Room, The Steps

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed  (road marked unsafe for travel 36 CFR 261.54 (e) Subject to $130 fine)

This popular 4x4 trail is known for its spectacular views of canyons, reddish/orange colored cliffs and tall hoodoos. The trail is marked and consists of hardpacked slickrock with occasional loose chunk rock. The terrain is rated as moderately challenging but there are a couple sections that are steep, rugged and narrow that might be more difficult for a novice driver.

The main staging area has limited parking so long trailers are not recommended. The area is open year-round but can get very busy, especially during weekends. Jeep tours are common and popular.

Camping is not permitted at the staging area or alongside the trail but there is a group campground located a few miles west and a few designated campgrounds north of Sedona. Reservations are recommended since sites usually fill up months in advance, especially during holiday weekends.

Also when in the area check out the several vortex sites (pockets of concentrated energy from the earth that some claim have special healing properties that increase intuitiveness.)
