Description

The Upper Lizardhead Trail connects the Lizardhead Trail to the northwest to the Upper Chimney Rock and Lower Chimney Rock trails to the south. Unfortunately, it has been modified, and is no longer a viable option for connecting these trails. A chain link fence has been put up just east of the large boulder roughly one-third of the distance east to west along the old trail, and the trail has been rerouted so that it climbs up to the base of the cliff to the north (and back down). Large portions of this rerouted section of the trail are unrideable, even by expert mountain bikers.

hike-a-bike only. Not worth using as a connector b/w West Sedona and Chimney Rock. Quicker, easier, safer, and more enjoyable to use Thunder Mtn RD

This trail was great for the views but just filled with hike a bike. Some of the sections were just way above my talent.
