Passing through Sedona
by HAZ_Hikebot

From the Pine Trailhead the trail works its way east along the Highline Trail (#31). It skirts the southern edge of Milk Ranch Point, passes by Red Rock Spring and reaches Geronimo Trailhead and Webber Creek. Continuing east, the trail passes Bray Creek and then comes to the Washington Park Trailhead. Here the trail turns north on the Colonel Devin Trail. It follows along the west bank of the East Verde River, crosses it and does a steep climb to the top of the Mogollon Rim. The passage terminates on the south side of FR 300 near the Battle of Big Dry Wash historical marker.

Southern Trailhead
Pine Trailhead
Drive south of Pine on AZ 87 for 0.6 miles and turn left (east) to reach a large parking area and the trailhead.

Northern Trailhead
FR 300 Trailhead
From the intersection of AZ 87 and AZ 260 north of Pine, drive east 2.6 miles on AZ 87 then turn right (south) toward FR 300. Go 0.1 miles and turn left onto FR 300. Avoid the frequent side roads and drive 12 miles on FR 300 to a turnoff on the left (north) at a historical marker for the Battle of Big Dry Wash. This is where the AZT crosses FR 300. Turn left and follow a power line 0.3 mile to General Springs Cabin. The road curves right to a small parking area and the trailhead.
