One of the most dynamic trails to be added to the Sedona Hiking Trail System in years. For those who have appreciated Munds Wagon Trail and Cow Pies, this trail takes it to the next level.
I especially appreciate this trail because it is not for everyone and takes a level of commitment to truly the unlock the majesty of this trail. In order to access Hangover you must hike 1.7 miles up Munds Wagon Trail—you may attempt this portion but this is not recommended due to the current condition of the adjacent road (Schnebly Hike Road)
After 1.7 miles take the junction left onto Hangover Trail. You will slowly rise up a series of switchbacks as Mitten Ridge towers over you. Behold, you arrive in the saddle where Oak Creek Canyon unfolds before you very eyes. After a short, steep ascent the trail levels out as you hike a 4-6 foot shelf along the backside of Mitten Ridge.
As you near the end of Mitten Ridge, the trail rises back up onto the Cow Pies saddle. Stay left as you descend down the backside. Follow Cow Pies as it will connect you back with Munds Wagon Trail. Be sure to bring your camera because this hike is truly spectacular.
