For a quieter more rugged beauty than the red rock Sedona trails have to offer, try this one, but be warned this is a remote trail 6 miles off road, which requires significant mental and physical effort. Even the drive to the trail head was a challenge on potholed rocky dirt roads—high clearance vehicles recommended. I recommend approaching from the south through Camp Verde vía Route 260. The dirt road begins at the turn off at route 618 N and gets more rugged on the 3.6 mile spur on Bull Pen rd. The road ends in a canyon basin at the trailhead. The trail begins in a shady riparian basin. This is the only water source on the entire trail. You then walk a half mile East where the trail takes a turn north East. From here on the trail is poorly marked and in parts obscured by overgrowth. I highly recommend having the AllTrails app open—at least for the first 1/2 to 1 mile. There is an unmarked crossroads at about 0.5 miles. Take a hard left and go about 200 yards where you will see the rails which are all that is left an old bridge that crosses a dry river bed. Do not cross the bridge. Instead, at the right side of the bridge entrance, walk down a steep short treacherous path to get to the river bed. We set up cairns to guide you the first quarter mile up the river bed. There should also be a cairn marking the spur headed north East out of the river bed. Then continue northeast watching for occasional cairns. The only other markers are one wooden post to the left of the trail about 200 yards after you climb out of the bed, and a wooden barb wired gate. After the gate the trails is easier to follow but still requires continuous attention. The trail then rises up a steep hill with only two switchbacks then crosses a saddle and circles around the north side of an adjacent hill. There were some small patches of snow but they did not encroach the pathway. We stopped a half mile from the end of the trail ( per all trails ends at a junction with a forest road) walked off trail 25 yards to the south for a beautiful view of the canyon below with partial views of the Verde Valley. Take care on the way back as loose gravel poses a slip and fall risk. See my photos for a sample of the landscape.
