Description

This is quite a tough trail, ascending steeply right from the start. The first couple of hills will get your heart rate pumping. The rest of the trail has lots of steep steps along the way.

Towards the end, it intersects Andante, and the last 0.2 miles are smooth and easy before you meet up with Teacup.

In spring, this is a decent trail. Zero shade. Lots of ups and downs & nice views of Sedona. It would be sweltering in summer.

Got lost mid-way on the trail, and ended up at a much higher elevation and on an undocumented trail.

Muddy and rocky in December. Beautiful views of city.
