Trail shared by Brigitte Flanagan

This is a good singletrack alternative to Sedona trails in the Coconino National Forest.

Description

Both pleasant and surprisingly technical sections make up this singletrack trail. You'll hike up ledges, cross creeks (dry and wet), pass neighborhoods, and even find an old rock creek bridge. Hike all of Backbone to Cornville or pick from several other trails in this network to make a loop back to the parking lot.
