“A loop around Courthouse Butte.”— Ray Smith
Continue clockwise around Courthouse Butte on the Courthouse Loop until the trail intersects with the Big Park Loop Connector and the Bell Rock Trail. This will take you back to the parking area.
The far side of Courthouse Butte offers really lovely vistas and solitude. Not only do you see some of the red rocks the Sedona area is famous along the Munds Mountain Wilderness area for but you also see part the Horse Mesa with it's contrasting green trees.
Part of this loop along the far side follows along and crosses a creek bed. There was a wee bit of water when I went through with the largest concentration of tadpoles I have ever seen.
Plenty of birds provided a soothing backdrop to my huffing and puffing up the hills.
