Intermediate 20% and advanced 70% and expert 10%, 2.33 mile MTB trail which is mainly a one directional singletrack that is very technical in nature. There are exposed off camber slickrock sections, steep slickrock climbs, narrow packed dirt exposed sections, twisty off camber sections, narrow hangover rock sections, very steep slickrock roll sections, steep narrow chunky rock sections and fast twisty tree sections. The trail is a great connector with the Munds Wagon trail for one of the most technical rides in Sedona. Entering Cow Pies trailhead off of Schnebly Hill Road will take you to Hangover trailhead.

      Some minor puddles from today's rain but the dirt itself is in good shape.

      If you like hike a bike, then you'll love the Hangover trail. This is not a slam of the trail, but as I put it to my wife, maybe once I'm bored...

      reporter There is a pille of rock fallen on the upper traverse. It was blocking trail, but now rideable. There is also a big rock later on the traverse...

       This was a great ride. the only thing i wish i knew before hand was to use the white painted markers as a guide and not the rule. More than a couple times i followed the white markers only to find myself taking a bad line. Use them for the trail direction but pick your own line.

       Parked at Huckabee trailhead, and pedaled up munds wagon trail to get to the cow pies parking trailhead. Munds had a lot of dead ends, due to overgrowth, so we ended up pedaling up schnebly to get to the cow pies trailhead.

      The trail was in great shape - dusty, but that's to be expected. For this of you (like me) with 800 mm bars, be prepared to strike hands on some of the overhanging rocks by wearing gloves, as the alternative is a potential tumble down hundreds of feet off to your right!

       Fun ride, pretty narrow in spots for my 800mm bars on the traverse around the Mesa. The steep slick rock on the decent was great, so much traction!

       Some of the best dirt in Sedona! Great flow along the backside of the mountain. A very impressive line to find and build, lots of respect for the trail builders!

       Awesome trail, especially if you start at the Schnelby Hill trail. You can backcountry camp for free at (34.8895690, -111.7024180) with spectacular views and the trail is a rather short ride away.

       Fun and tricky climbing to the col. If you were thinking of cutting your bars, do it before you head up there, as you might end up walking a few more bits on the traverse than trying the squeeze near the edge. Slab descent off the col is cool, and main decent after the traverse is steep techy bliss.

       This is a ‘must ride’. Those who make this ride are rewarded with long sustained climbs on slick rock, amazing dirt, epic viewpoints and an incredible descent. I’ve never seen a trail quite like this.

       Hangover is a great trail. It definitely has some exposure and tight spots, so if you don't like heights it might not be the trail for you. The highlight is taking in the views at the top of the saddle. I wrote up a blog post about the 8 best trails in Sedona (in my opinion) and Hangover is one of them twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/my-eight-favorite-mountain-bike-trails-in-sedona-arizona

       This is such a great trail. Climb and traverse up on the slickrock is so fun and perfect techy, then the decent and traverse on the backside keeps you on your toes. Recommend some balls to ride this trail the whole way through. Amazing! Must ride if in Sedona!
