The Cow Pies are multlevel, flat red rock mounds located in the middle of Bear Wallow Canyon. From the edge of the enormous slick rock mounds are world-class views into the canyon below. The circular sandstone formations are one of Sedona’s foremost vortex sites. Stones carefully placed in a circle, known as medicine wheels, are used as an antenna to attract positive energies. Medicine wheels are usually seen on formation to the next. John Wayne was filmed at this site while acting in the 1940’s film Angel and the Batman. If you love Red Rocks then you will love Cow Pies.

An easy and visually rewarding trail… We hiked one-way on Cow Pies from The Hangover Trail towards Munds Wagon trail. Route was well marked, and a nice ‘break’ after the much more difficult Hangover trail.
