High Point

We do not recommend this trail if you are less than an advanced rider or are nervous with heights as there are some incredibly challenging sections with exposure.

This is the hardest trail in Sedona. Expect super challenging and steep climbs, huge exposure, incredible view and descents that are puckering for all levels of riders. That being said, if you are an expert level rider you should ride this trail while in Sedona. Use your common sense and walk any sections that scare you. The trail is completely ride-able for high skilled riders, it is just that if you make a mistake the consequences could be high in a couple of spots.

We suggest that you ride up the Schnebly Hill Road (rather than up on the Munds Wagon trail). Trail forks shows the start of the ride going up on Munds, but it forced that route on us... ignore that first bit and just climb up the jeep road all the way to the trail head for Hangover, once out of Hangover descend down Munds back to your starting point.

For a totally epic version of this ride we suggest the following: Start at Over the Edge bikes, climb part way up to the airport, descend Brewer, then climb up to this Hangover route as we have shown it. (If you feel done here you can just ride back after Hangover - for the full epic version do the following): Next ride Huckaby, then climb up Wilson Canyon to Jim Thompson and descend down Javelina... this is an awesome ride of close to 40km and 800 ish meters of climbing and 4-7+ hours of riding.
