Trail Overview

The combination of these trails takes you on a long loop that starts in Sedona at Dry Creek. If you start at Cottonwood you can go north and runGreasy Spoon in reverse. This is a rough, rugged trail without a lot of scenery, but it is popular due to its steep hills along the pipeline. There is camping available at the south end of the trail with room for RVs and campers, but be prepared to get muddy if it rains. There is a corridor road that will take you to numerous side roads that ATVs will have a blast on.

Moderate: We were tempted to rate this trail difficult because of the steep, rocky hills, but they really aren't that tough for vehicles with 4WD and good ground clearance. Aggressive stock SUVs can do it. Road 152A can become impassable when wet.
