Westerners Tackle Seldom-Hiked Secret Mountain Trail
On a very hike-favorable morning the Mustangs, the Sedona Westerners Thursday hiking group, took aim at the Secret Mountain Trail. Not to be confused with the Secret Canyon Trail, the Secret Mountain Trail follows a portion of the Mogollon Rim that lies high above some of Sedona's best known canyon hikes.
This hike is rarely done because the trailhead is at the end of a network of rough Forest Service roads. The access roads start either near the top of the switchbacks in Oak Creek Canyon or off Woody Mountain Road in Flagstaff - pick your poison, because either one will require 40 to 50 minutes of dirt road, parts of which are poorly maintained. A high-clearance vehicle is absolutely necessary.
