The Huckaby is a system trail in the Coconino National Forest. It is well marked with signs and easy to followhis trail, constructed in 1998, is never far from the sights and sounds of Sedona. It is a pretty trail which offers a variety of views. It can be hiked from the Schnebly Hill trailhead (as described herein, shown below) or from Midgley Bridge.
The trail is nearly level for 1/8 mile. The Margs Draw Trail forks off to the left soon after leaving the parking area and the Huckaby continues ahead descending rather steeply to cross Bear Wallow Wash, then ascends moderately over the next 1/2 mile. It tops out on a ridge and winds on level ground with nice views over Oak Creek and Uptown Sedona to many of the familiar red rock formations of the area.
FINDING THE TRAILHEADS
Schnebly Hill: From the junction of Hwy 89A and 179 (the double roundabout), take Hwy 179 south, cross the bridge over Oak Creek, and exit left onto Schnebly Hill Rd at the next roundabout. Take the paved portion of Schnebly Hill Rd approximately .5 miles to the paved parking area on the left just before the road turns to dirt. A Red Rock Pass or America the Beautiful Pass is required.
