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.

We had a great time. My 10 year old daughter loved it and had a blast.
Varied terrain. Great guide who interacted the entire way on a personal level.
Great tour and Ree Ree was a great tour guide. I also appreciate the audio system she wore making it easy to follow her remarks.
It was a fantastic tour. IDuff was an excellent tour guide. The off road was so much fun. We learned a lot of information.
Guide was great, scenery attractive, and bumpy right was just right - fun, but not scary or painful. I might have liked more than just a single stop, it was a long time spent driving.
Loved it! JEn was an amazing guide and we loved the microphone/speakers in the Jeep! My dad was on the tour and losing his hearing so it was a HUGE benefit to our tour
Loved it. First time on an off road vehicle, it was a blast. Truly enjoyed having a guide explain what we were seeing and giving us stories.
It was so much fun! our guide Kelly was great! I will always remember my first pink jeep tour!
It was an amazing experience to take a tour in a non-traditional way. Excitement, education and laughs all rolled into one!
