Sedona – Munds Wagon Trail…

After a rest day Sharon declared herself ready to ride. So we decided to check out Munds Wagon Trail. An 8 mile out and back that climbed Schnebly Hill. The ride up was as hard as we had heard with steepish technical sections and equally hard loose rocky chunk. The trail crossed a jeep road up the hill several times so we could have bailed and ridden to the top with considerably more ease, but sucking in dust and gas fumes didn’t seem like more fun than riding and pushing on the trail.

Kudos to Sharon for trying to ride every section of trail no matter how gnarly. Riding up and down loose chundery chunk is not something we do at home a lot so it was a good skills building ride. The sun has been getting hotter and hotter each day so finding shade to rest in has become important. We are both developing some goofy mountain bike tans from our pads and gloves.

As has been the case with all the trails we have ridden here in Sedona we seemed to have the whole place to ourselves. We only ran into a couple riders at the start and a couple groups of hikers.

The ride up isn’t for the faint of heart so we’ll give this trail another run when our friends get to town and shuttle it to maximize their smiley time vs. their hike-a-bike time.
