Our Diamondback Gulch Tour brings the Arizona high country to life with an off-road adventure on rugged, red trails under the expansive sky. Step into one of our open-air Pink® Jeep® Wranglers and buckle up – you’re about to see why this tour offers something for everyone.
As you start out, your personal Certified Interpretive Guide will point out some of Sedona’s most iconic red-rock formations. You’ll also pass scenic Boynton Canyon, a setting for the 1947 John Wayne film, “Angel and the Badman” and the site of hidden ancient ruins. Mingus Mountain and the Black Hills appear in the distance, standing watch over the peaceful Verde Valley.
After arriving in Coconino National Forest, you’ll head down the remote Greasy Spoon trail. A section of the original wagon route between Sedona and Prescott, this century-old trail stretches back to an era before Arizona was a state. Catch glimpses of a colorful past when the cliffs, canyons and forests were wild, uncharted territory and 50,000 Texas longhorn cattle roamed the land.
Continue on to Sidewinder Trail, where the rocky terrain falls into Diamondback Gulch—a deep ravine that slices through the land. Hold on while your guide expertly navigates the steep descent into the chasm before climbing out again. Expansive views greet you on the other side; the fiery red-rock trail contrasts the cool green of the native landscape and the brilliant blue sky.
Finally, an easy ride from the forest back to Sedona will give you plenty of time to catch your breath, steady your feet and plan your next off-road adventure with Pink® Jeep® Tours.

Absolutely beautiful. I wish maybe there one more chance to get out and walk around.
Really enjoyed our tour
Amazing views and comfortable seating. Highly skilled and knowledgeable guide who has passion for the outdoors. He connected well with our family!
Driver/guide was awesome. Scenery was beautiful and the up and down through the gulch was outrageous. At time it looked like we were going to drive off a cliff.
Steve, our tour guide, the youngest guide in the group he said, was FANTASTIC! He has a real career in people! Funny, informative and remembered all of our names and our voices as he was driving. Great guy to have for these tours.
Different from other tours we have taken. Exciting!
Brandon was the best tour guide I've ever had! Literally the coolest, more knowledgeable person I've met. I'd take the same tour again just because he made it so awesome!
