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.

Outstanding except for process to meet our guide...see earlier comments. Don’t herd people and make this less stressful.
Fun tour and educational. Learned lots about the desert.
Again, enjoyed our day - and guide was fantastic. Thought that Diamondback Gulch was lame — would do pink Jeep again but pick a more interesting tour.
Great tour, so much fun! Almost wish we could have gone faster, but for safety reasons I know it wasn't possible.
Okay - a little boring. I wouldn’t do Diamondback Gulch again, nor would I recommend that particular tour.
Our Jeep broke down in the middle of the desert.
It was so much fun and we all had a blast. Daughters 12&14 loved it. Kelly was great with us and so knowledgable! She has a great sense of humor too and lovely giggle.
Great! A lot of fun. EXCELLENT tour guide- Kyle!
exciting, beautiful, fun!
