To hike
From the "Y" in Sedona head into west Sedona on 89A. Turn right at Dry Creek Road. Just before the T, turn left onto FS 9589. Park at end of the road.

From the junction of Routes 89A and 179, take 89A west 3.2 miles to Dry Creek Road on the right. Go north 2.8 miles to a small, dirt road on the left just before the road crosses Dry Creek and comes to the stop sign at Long Canyon / Boynton Pass Road. Follow the dirt road for 1/4 mile and park at the old borrow pit.

The old borrow pit is the same as the shooting pit off Dry Creek Road. When traveling north on Dry Creek Road, the road just to the left, just before the intersection of Boynton Pass Road (152C) and Long Canyon Road (152D) and before crossing Dry Creek (on a small bridge) goes to the borrow pit/shooting pit. At the southwest end of this pit you'll find the Arizona Cypress trailhead
