The road to catch is actually Schnebly Hill Rd. When the road turns into an old dirt jeep road, you'll see the TH on the left ($5.00 fee to park). Definitely take the Munds Wagon Trail (singletrack) instead of the jeep rd (Schnebly), as there are tons of jeeps and it's super dusty to climb the road up. Be aware of hikers and yeild accordingly. As you climb Munds, you'll eventually come to a sign for Hangover going to your left. Avoid taking this left and continue ahead on Munds as Hangover is best ridden counter-clockwise. You'll eventually come to a trail for Cowpie's going to the left. Take this singletrack and it will lead you to the beginning of Hangover. Without a doubt, this is an advanced to expert trail. If you don't do well with heights or exposure, definitely reconsider this trail to avoid being miserable. With that said, this trail is definitely a Sedona classic, and a blast! Don't let the short mileage of 3.2 miles for Hangover fool you. The climb up Munds and across Cowpies will take it's toll and leave you feeling a little gased. Hike a bike when necessary if you aren't feeling 100%, as falls on this trail will result in substantial damage to your bike and your body. Don't forget the camera, extra water, and food to fuel you through this one!
