Weekend Trip While Pregnant

We are coming up to Sedona from Phoenix for a weekend get-away before baby gets here.

I would like to do the Oak Creek Canyon loop, with a stop at West Fork, slide rock, and lunch at Ken's Creekside.

Do you think this is do-able for a pregnant lady (I've continued to work out, so have been feeling pretty well). Also, is this drivable in a regular car (Altima)?

Any other suggestions?

Oak Creek Canyon isn't a loop. 89A runs from Sedona to Flagstaff via Oak Creek Canyon so it's a drive up and back, and yes, it's worth driving twice.

I see no reason why you can't visit these places although I'd urge you not to get to rough at Slide Rock. Your car will be fine.

You might enjoy the Bell Rock area since you are pregnant. Very doable with great views and parking is close. You can choose to walk as far as you like or just sit below Bell Rock and contemplate life with that beautiful baby. Best wishes for a healthy birth (after you get home.) :)

Red Rock Crossing is also an enjoyable place to walk along the creek and have a picnic and enjoy the views.

I think a lot depends on your due date, whether it is a few months away or less.

Bell Rock is a great option, several little trails that stay fairly flat but get you out into the Red Rocks.

Brunch at L'Auberge is a great way to celebrate your Babymoon along the creek
