       Carrol Canyon to Ridge heading South to North/up, is the route that we took. Mostly all uphill but had some descending. You get to pass through a creek towards the end that usually always has water. Perfect for a stop and quick freshening up! Some rocky tech sections and tight switchbacks out of nowhere!

       Not for sure if it was Carrol Canyon or Old Post that had a really techy, uphill, tall(12in. or so)rock, climb. Probably have to walk this one.

       Fun trail. Less technical than most Sedona blue trails.
