David Miller Loop Day Hike: Sedona, April 13, 2013 GPS Map

Got off to a late start, so I wasn’t on the trail until 10:30. The weather was ideal. Although I met other hikers on the trail, there weren’t any organized groups. The loop hike can be done in either direction, starting from either trailhead. This time I decided to start from Secret Canyon Trailhead and walk the loop clockwise.

Dry Creek Road, FR 152, is exceedingly rough and rocky and washed out in places. It’s probably O.K. in a Hummer. While driving back I passed by a Pink Jeep; and yes, my Subaru Forester got through.

Since I needed one more Sedona trail for Footloose From Phoenix, it’s going to be this one.
