Taylor Cabin Loop Trail

Taylor Cabin Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Starting from the Dogie Trailhead, this loop through the central portion of Sycamore Canyon uses the Dogie, Taylor Cabin, and Casner Mountain Trails to take you through the red rock country of Sycamore Canyon, past a historic rancher’s line cabin, and over the top of Casner Mountain, where you’ll find views of much of the western Mogollon Rim and the Verde Valley.

You’ll definitely want to do this loop clockwise to avoid the steep climb up the south slopes of Casner Mountain. A Red Rock Pass, obtainable at the Red Rock Ranger Station in Sedona, is required for parking at the trailhead."

"This is a fine hike through the remote red-rock canyons of the Sycamore Canyon and Red Rock–Secret Mountain Wildernesses. A bonus is the return trail across the top of Casner Mountain, which gives you outstanding views of Sycamore Canyon."

There is usually water in Sycamore Creek during the spring, but it is dry later in the year. Enough water should be carried for a dry camp if the creek is dry. On the other hand, Sycamore Creek may be flooding and be impassable during snowmelt or after a major storm. In this case you’ll have to make the hike an out and back, which you can do in a day."
