Sedona Stroll!
by joebartels

Although in great shape, Marg's Draw is a non-maintained trail. Named after a horse that grazed the area in the late 1800's. From the parking area check out the posted trail information. Actually cross the road to access the trail. The beginning is a push uphill, soon after the trail levels out for the majority of its length. Practically in the middle of Sedona this trail is a great stroll. Along the way you will see Snoopy taking a nap. Follow the trail as far as you like. Most probably turn around before the end. The trail actually goes to Schnebly Hill Road for those interested. Sorry, I forgot to bring film for the camera. - Mar 01 1997


New Century Update
This is an official trail now. Here is the FS description.

This scenic trail can be hiked from the Broken Arrow Trailhead (as described here), from the Sombart Lane trailhead, or from Schnebly Hill. From Broken Arrow, it begins by crossing the wash just north of the parking area and enters Wilderness. Shade is soon left behind and nice red rock views open up as the trail winds its way north across a nearly flat expanse dotted with juniper, pinyon pine and Arizona cypress. The trail crosses the draw by a scenic dry waterfall at the .75 mile point.

Nearing one mile, a half-mile long spur trail comes in on the left from the trail access at the end of Sombart Lane. Continue ahead. Soon, Uptown Sedona, Capitol Butte, Wilson Mountain and Steamboat Rock come into view. At 1.25 miles, the trail curves around the base of Camel Head and there is a good view of that formation and of Snoopy Rock above and to the right. The trail leaves Wilderness, crosses Schnebly Hill Road, and goes east about 0.8 mile before ending at a large parking turnout. Return by the same route or hike one way with arranged transportation. The hike can be extended to the north using Huckaby Trail and to the south using Broken Arrow Trail.
