It's been awhile since we've hiken in Sedona. The forecast was showing favorable temps, so I worked up a loop with some of my favorites. I'm also not a fan of fighting the afternoon traffice in Sedona, so we came in via Schnebly Hill Rd, off I-17. This is 6 miles of dirt to get to the Schnebly Hill Vista TH. Any vehicle can make it to this point. After that, HC with good tires are an absolute must. The parking lot is worse than any portion of the road to this point.

We started on Casner Canyon Trail #11 heading down. The views open up to the Sedona city area as you drop. Towards Oak Creek, you start seeing some interesting geology. The Oak Creek area is very picturesque.

On the Damifino Trail, it appears that they may have decommissioned the lower portion ending at Mitten Ridge. Where it meets Casner Canyon, it is no longer obvious. Once you get in a bit it becomes very obvious and is easy to follow all the way to the smooth red rock section. The important part here is to get high enough to hit the trail on the proper contour to get to Mitten Ridge.

The Hangover Trail is my favorite trail in Sedona. It never disappoints. I still thinks MTB'ers who do this trail have multiple screws loose.

On the Munds Wagon Trail we start the long climb, past the Cow Pies TH, past the Merry Go Round and up Schnebly Hill Trail #158. We climbed up to the saddle just before the steep ascent to Munds Mountain. We took a late lunch and then hit the FR's back to the TH.

A great day in Sedona
