Trail shared by Leslie Kehmeier

A mix of technical and flow with awesome views of Oak Creek and Cathedral Rock.

Description

Starts from the parking lot access on Shelby Dr in West Sedona and runs south through a pasture with easy flowing turns. The route is relatively flat except for a few cobbly dry stream crossings.

After passing the Carroll Canyon intersection Ridge starts to climb steadily to a high point overlooking Oak Creek Canyon and Cathedral Rock.

From there the trail descends gradually across sandstone before plunging down a few rocky technical sections. Stay right at the bottom of the last section and roll out to the road. Cross the road and continue through flatter terrain to the Ramshead intersection. From here you can turn left to access Secret Slickrock and the Crescent Moon trailhead or go right on Ramshead to Old Post trailhead.
