Our Diamondback Gulch Tour brings the Arizona high country to life with a rugged off-road adventure. 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 rugged and 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.

The Gulch adventure was amazing! I had seen these kind of off-roading in films or in TV commercials and always desired to take an exciting off-roading adventure. I'm so glad I took the Pink Jeep Tour and got to see the tremendous views of the beautiful red rocks of Sedona! Tommy Davis, our tour driver was highly knowledgeable about the history of these rocks and gave excellent scientific explanations to the many queries that my wife and I had during the ride. Thanks Tommy, you're an amazing guide and a wonderful driver in these very dangerous tracts! Look forward to another trip and another ride with Tommy!
Tommy made the tour so enjoyable- great stories, history but fun and entertaining. Excellent driver and was very considerate if we wanted to stop for pix. He took my fav pix ever of my husband and I!! Loved the whole experience. (Although this survery is very very long) ??
It was so much fun and informative?!
Everything about the tour was amazing. Our guide Jimbo was amazing and the trainee he had as well was very nice.
I liked it. But I am not a fan of off roading as I think it is bad for the environment also too many incompetent people drive four wheelers. That being said our guide was very good at explaining how it all worked in the national forest and how they worked to protect it. I appreciated his concern for the environment. The views were spectacular and the main reason I chose the tour. It did not disappoint. Thank you!
Fun to take, thanks.
I already did this
My guide seemed knowledgeable but he didn’t really talk unless asked. Not sure if it was due to cold weather but I felt more like a ride not a tour
