Several months back as I was tooling around this wonderful park in Cottonwood, I came across this cool looking Eagle hanging in plain sight. This is a great park to explore about 20 miles south of Sedona. The trails in this system are in Dead Horse Ranch State Park and in the Coconino National Forest. Trail users, the Dead Horse Ranch Trails Coalition, Arizona State Parks rangers and volunteers, and the Forest Service work together to manage and maintain the trails to provide an excellent experience in the park. Bring extra water and get an early start in the summer months. Trailheads are located north of the lagoon area or at the end of Flycatcher Road.
Dead Horse Trail System: A non-motorized 20+ mile shared-use mix of doubletrack and singletrack. Four trailheads throughout the park lead up to the high desert of Coconino National Forest. The Lime Kiln Trail leg follows a portion of the historic Lime Kiln Wagon Road. Hikers and equestrians are encouraged to travel counter-clockwise on the the basic loop — Lime Kiln, Thumper, and Raptor Trails. Mountain bikers usually find that starting at the Roadrunner trailhead and riding the loop clockwise is more fun. For most cyclists, the trail is rated intermediate to expert. The Lime Kiln Trail follows a portion of the historic Lime Kiln Wagon Road from Cottonwood to Sedona. Learn more about Lime Kiln Trail and learn more about Share the Trail.
