may just be the most beautiful place next to Sedona! WOW WOW WOW....many areas to explore. We traveled a lot uphill but worth it. now going to tour the castle! A must see!!!
$25-$30 to park during the season, well worth the money if you want easy parking, and a day at the beach and exploring. Take the trail at the end of the lot *back right*. It leads you through the woods to less populated beach spots.
This is a beautiful trail, that allows you to trek round the house, through a uplands forest, and along the dunes, onto the beach if you like. There are few places with this sort of diversity, and it makes for a lovely day.
We were here on an overcast/rainy day and had nearly the whole place to over selves. Parking was $10 (off-season rate?). Be forewarned, the trails are mostly sand paths through the dunes, so bring proper footwear and quad muscles! Even spotted some plovers on the beach!
Nice walk through the dunes at cranes beach. Still have to pay to park. Would have liked to know the trail is mostly sand.
This trail is mostly made of sand and was hard to climb at times. There is also a $25 fee to enter the area where the trail starts. The views were pretty but ultimately not worth the money or sand in my shoes.
