Munds Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"This hike in the Munds Mountain Wilderness takes you up a historic road, and offers excellent views of Mitten Ridge, Bear Wallow Canyon, Munds Mountain, and Sedona."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Northern Arizona (Falcon Guides).
While the trailhead is difficult to find, and trail route hard to follow, the views were worth it. This would appear to be not only the best, but the least used of trails in the Sedona area. I suspect it is among the least used because of remoteness and signage problems. The views, however, are tantamount to flying over the red rocks in a small plane, and there are views in other directions as well.
This has great views of Sedona - if you leave the trail once you get on top of Munds Mountain. I found yellow traffic tape blazing a trail to the rim of a canyon that overlooked Sedona - that was well worth the trip. The top of Munds Mountain is pretty barren, though. The climb up is the best part.
