"Gentle" hiking options in Scottsdale and Sedona

Jump to last reply

All

Our Merry Band for our Spring Break trip to Scottsdale and Sedona has just expanded. My MIL and FIL are going to be joining us. My MIL has just finished a long, nasty, cold, winter of chemo and needs to celebrate in the sun and warmth. Prior to her treatment she was (and still is) a huge walker/hiker and swims every day, etc. However, one of the side effects of her treatment has been extreme leg pain and she worries about her abilities to complete any strenuous hikes. Leaving her at the resorts will NOT be an option...she will NOT allow it. So, my challenge is to find some hikes that we can do where we actually feel like we are hiking and seeing beautiful scenery while simultaneously not being overly strenuous. Any thoughts?

Thanks so much.
