Jim Thompson Vortex Tour

This is a great trail for those who are serious about hiking. The lower level hike is about 30-50 minutes long and ventures into a side canyon wash for ceremony, or continue to climb another 30 minutes for a spectacular view. This location is best for those who want to make a day out of hiking and exercise, as well as ceremony if you wish.

Beautiful junipers, piñons, and manzanitas grace the meandering trail. Despite it’s relaxed orientation, you will still be blessed with views of Sedona, Jerome and Mingus mountain. The Jim Thompson trail’s highest point is 4,700 feet and is part of the old road built by Jim Thompson to link his home in Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona. The Jim Thompson Trail has two type of rock formations that can be viewed while hiking. The first is known as Schnebly Hill formation, which consists of red rock. This type of rock was formed when ancient rivers deposited iron oxide from the mountains of Arizona. The second formation is a white layer known as the Coconino formation that was created from the sands in the area comes from wind-blown sand that created dunes similar to those found in the Sahara Desert.
