One of the most photographed scenes in the Sedona area is towering Cathedral Rock reflected in the waters of Oak Creek at Red Rock Crossing. There is a fee, so bring a swimming suit and plan on staying awhile after finding this box.

Drive west from Sedona on Hwy 89A for about 4 miles. Turn south on FR 216 (Upper Red Rock Loop Road) and go about 2 miles, following the signs to Red Rock Crossing. Pay the fee and park at the end of the road.

Walk southeast on the path toward the creek and continue on the dirt path as it follows the creek upstream it becomes red rock. Continue across the rock about 50 yards until you reach a scenic view of Cathedral Rock above rapids in the creek. Find the dirt path to your left and walk 38 steps to a rock cairn. Turn left and walk 18 steps off trail and slightly uphill to a 4 foot stump. The letterbox is within under a rock and sticks.
