Another short but interesting drive close to Sedona. Only the last part of the trip is challenging. See remains of a well-preserved homesteader’s cabin. A metal roof has been added to the cabin to help preserve it. Watch for rattlesnakes inside the cabin. Side trip to Devils Bridge makes a great hike. If you park, hike, or stop along the route, you’ll need a Red Rocks Pass. Several rock ledges require careful tire placement. Tight brush in a few places. Stock SUVs with high ground clearance can make it.

The turn off for this trail can easily be overlooked but worth the effort for an afternoon ride. I suspect that getting to the cabin during wetter times might prove difficult if not impossible. Stock 4wd vehicles should have little trouble with proper wheel placement. Great views and interesting history.
