About the Author
William was an Executive Engineer for a major auto company. When he moved to Sedona in 2002, he began hiking the Sedona trails. On these hikes he took numerous photos, compiled GPS "tracks" of the trails and made comprehensive trail notes. William continues to hike the trails in Sedona and constantly updates trail information. David was a music professor and associate dean of the College of the Arts at a major midwestern university until he retired in 2003. After moving to Sedona, he began hiking with a local hiking group. He is an enthusiastic photographer, and he has hiked over 100 trails in the Sedona area.

The only criticism I have about this book is that while the trail descriptions are good, there is no mention of the several other offshoots you will see when hiking a specific trail. The trails throw you some options that make you questions whether the turn you come upon is the turn that is mentioned in the book or is that farther down the trail. Some of this criticism probably should go to the Parks Service who, instead of showing you all trails, has signs that just show you what they think are the major trails. We took several wrong turns on two separate hikes.
We also used another book (written by Greg Stevenson) which we also found valuable. It showed details on the parking areas a little better (and also indicated the number of parking spaces, which we thought was somewhat important) but did not have as many trails as this Bohan and Butler book.
If you visiting Sedona for a short period of time (3-5 days), the Stevenson book will suffice. However, if you are in Sedona for more than 5 days or plan on returning again, I would recommend Great Sedona Hikes.
PS….I would have given this 5 stars except for one thing. The "unmarked trail" that the authors say allows you to complete the Bell Rock loop quickly disappeared about .25 miles in. It has either washed away or overgrown since the last publish date, but this happens in the desert. Because it was getting dark, we turned back to the main trail.
As a bonus, I e-mailed the author a question about one of the trails and he responded quickly. I was even invited out for their group hike for the day. Great fun!
I purchased the 3rd edition because it had more hikes than the 2nd edition (which has more hikes than the 1st).
The route descriptions are good and this book will get used during my vacation.
