Margs Draw Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Margs Draw Trail 163 heads north from the entrance to the parking lot— it is somewhat hidden among tall pinyon, juniper, and Arizona cypress trees, but if you walk as though you are exiting the parking area, the signed trailhead will be on your right. Once your dog is watered and leashed (pack plenty of extra water to keep your dog’s tail wagging on this typically dry trail), you are ready to head out. You and your dog immediately cross a wash and enter Munds Mountain Wilderness, which is open to horseback riding and hiking. You emerge from the shaded trailhead and wash onto an exposed path—from here, shade is intermittent but highly accessible for frequent rest and water breaks on warmer days."
--Renee Guillory, Best Hikes with Dogs: Arizona (The Mountaineers Books).
This was a nice, dog friendly hike. Throughout there is a good view of Sedona and surrounding regions. The trail can be hiked in both directions - as mentioned in the guide, AND from the intersection pay lot where the Huckaby trail starts. In wet weather, it is easier to get in the pay lot.
