Not recommended with an actual hangover
Please note while this is not a difficult trail, some may find it a bit much. It hugs a fine line. Hikers with a fear of footing or balanced-challenged on uneven rock surfaces should be careful.
Some of the BEST views in Sedona are along the Hangover Trail. However, it does not begin or end at a trailhead. The easiest access is a 7-mile lasso loop utilizing Munds Wagon Trail #78. Full details in Mitten Ridge - Bear Paw Loop. Statistics here are one-way for Hangover Trail propper.
Accessed via the 0.5-mile Cow Pies Trail over scenic slick rock and marked by white painted spots on the rock. At the end of the Cow Pies Trail is a sign indicating the beginning of the Hangover Trail.
The official Hangover Trail climbs and traverses the sandstone slopes until it reaches a saddle in the ridgeline. Footing along this section (and the entire trail) can be a bit tricky, with the trail frequently sloping to the side towards long drop-offs. Views in all directions are abundant from this saddle.
The trail begins its descent past the saddle and traverses under numerous overhanging sandstone cliffs, giving the trail its name. These are very interesting. Eventually, the trail descends more quickly down steep slickrock slopes. The white paint spots lead the way on all slickrock sections of the trail. Eventually, the trail descends back to the Munds Wagon Trail.
Worth sobering up!
