Baldwin Trail - Sedona
Baldwin Trail Description: Starting this trail across from parking area off dirt section of Verde Valley School road, it soon drops down a bit to the valley floor. It will be near but out of sight of Oak Creek. This section of the trail is a bit sandy. Along the flat sandy trail section, it meets the end of the Templeton Trail. The Baldwin Trail forks sharply right and climbs moderately (with a few short steep climbs) through a draw between Cathedral Rock and a red rock butte. This hike provides wonderful views of Cathedral Rock and surrounding area. It levels out and then begins a gradual descent to the southwest and comes to a “T” where you will see utility lines and poles. A right turn toward the creek will take you to the start of the trail across from parking area. A left turn will take you toward the Turkey Creek parking area. Sections between Cathedral Rock and a red rock butte can be more challenging for horseback.
Challenge: Moderate / Intermediate (biking)
Trail Use: Light to Moderate
