Amazing trail; In February, by choosing this trail, you will avoid the snow and icy cold water of West Fork trail. For us, we went to west fork trail, soaked our boots and returned to this trail to our utter astonishment. This trail is not for kids or faint of heart. It definitely has a steep climb, but then once you are the top, boy the views are mesmerizing. I would recommend this to any thrill seeker, who has a good fitness level and desire to take up a challenge to hike in Mount Wilson and enjoy the vista. Peace

The entrance to the trail is easy to miss - so remember that it is from the parking lot just north of the only Dairy Queen you will see on highway 89A after Sedona

Hiked in February, temperatures were decent and the views most remarkable, shade should be decent even in the dead of summer . I feel the ideal time would be April-May when the ground snow that we experienced higher up should have disappeared by then. The climb can be tiring but if you keep it slow & fun with frequent selfie and hydration breaks it's not difficult. We hiked around 4 miles up and were limited by sunset , would have gone further for sure. Carry some snack and couple liters of Gatorade and enjoy the hike . Definitely recommend a selfie-stick !

Set aside about 6-7 hours to hike up Wilson Mountain. We hiked up a day after it rained, so the peak upper plain and top mesa had about 6-8 inches of snow. We were the first to hike up that day and so had to find the trail through the snow. Getting to the top was well worth it as we viewed Sedona from the top as well as the surrounding areas. An excellent hike with plenty of switchbacks, and three ecosystems - desert, deciduous, and conifers.

Wilson Mountain Trail is a gradual uphill climb through scenic views. Bring water... you can walk as far as you like, then turn back and return to the parking.

That was our second time hiking Wilson Mountain. Last year we did the North trail, this year we did the South trail. The South trail has more sun and is a little bit longer. Both trails come together approximately half way up the mountain. There are some flat and steep sections, but overall nothing too difficult. Once you reach the top you are rewarded with a great views of the Sedona area and even the San Francisco mountains north of Flagstaff.
