From its trailhead, the Dawa Trail goes south a short way before bending to the west along a closed jeep road with some good views. It meets the Cockscomb Trail at .9 miles and turns sharply southeast to follow it for 100 feet. The Cockscomb Trail then splits off to the southwest and the Dawa Trail continues southeast for .8 miles before ending at the Arizona Cypress Trail beside Dry Creek.

This is more of a nature walk than a hike. We started on Cockscomb and made our way to Dawa then to OK, to AZ Cypress, and back to Cockscomb. We did see lots of jackrabbits and snakes while on these trails. The highlight was crossing the dry creek beds lines with beautiful giant blue stones. While not the best hike we took in Sedona, it was a very peaceful and isolated hike.
very easy trail. Not very interesting. Good for beginners.
