Excerpt: “Airport Loop Trail is a moderate hike and not for the faint of heart; it is very rocky and there are some steep drop offs. The upside is the absolutely amazing panoramic views you’ll see…Along the trail, you may see wildlife and rugged cacti, and hear city noise with a few airplanes taking off and landing. Kind of throws you for a a”loop!”
The book was the idea of Steve Segner, owner of El Portal Sedona Hotel. As an outdoors-man he is an avid supporter of the natural world here in Sedona, and considers himself a local, after transplanting from California many years ago!
