Arizona Trailblazers Hiking Club
Wilson Mountain Barrelhouse Day Hike
when Trip Report : April 16, 2005
where? Sedona
the hike A colorful rock formation on the western slopes of Wilson Mountain looks remarkably like a row of barrels. On this off-trail adventure we'll climb up to the barrels, or as close as we can get, then visit nearby Angel Falls, a scenic box canyon with two waterfalls. Come prepared for boulder scrambling, bushwhacking (through non-prickly manzanita), and rock hopping in Sedona's spectacular red rock country! Bring plenty of water, as the barrels contain only rock.
