“Awesome introduction to Sedona; great on its own or as part of a bigger ride in the Dry Creek area.”— Leslie Kehmeier
From the Dry Creek Vista Trailhead, the trail drops 150 ft in just under 1 mi. When arriving at the Chuckwagon Connector, stay right on Chuckwagon. This section is a rolling, playful trail that contours in and out of slickrock washes. There will be a few techy challenges that require a few hard pedal strokes to navigate some rock steps before getting back to swoopy trail.
The middle part of the trail is a gradual climb and descent through the intersection with Brinns Mesa trail. Stay left to continue on Chuckwagon, crossing a drainage and the road before climbing again up a small hillside.
The route levels out and heads south after a quick punchy climb up a section of exposed slickrock. From here the trail twists and turns through the pinion/juniper forest towards Long Canyon. Although there are few sections of the descent that are loose and rocky, the route is fun and fast.
The Chuckwagon Loop ends at the Long Canyon Trailhead. Cross the road to access Mescal and Long Canyon Trail.
