Damfino Vortex & Meditation Site
Reached via a well established social trail near the bottom of Schnebly Hill Road, the Damfino Vortex Site is just minutes from Uptown, making it one of the best kept secrets in all of Sedona. This is a short, easy to find scenic spot that you're almost certain to have all to yourself.
With plenty of flat, comfortable space that is perfect for a yoga mat and meditation, Damfino is a great choice for anyone seeking to experience the spiritual side of the red rocks. When you walk out onto the slickrock here, you'll literally be surrounded by magnificent scenery in all directions. Yoga with a view!
FINDING THE TRAILHEAD
Here you will need to leave the Munds Wagon trail, cross the road, and find a well used social trail heading uphill (shown below). It's hard to tell now but this used to be a jeep road, so there are a couple of large boulders blocking the entrance. These are left over from when the forest service closed the old road.
The social trail is easy to follow, except that it crosses two sections of slickrock to reach a third. The last one (shown below) provides the best view and the largest flat surface. To reach the third section of slickrock cross the first section by going east toward the Temple of Diana.
