“Some good views and scrambling”
Review of Lizard Head Trail

Lizard Head Trail
Ranked #107 of 158 things to do in Sedona
Reviewed 23 December 2015

We did this as a shuttle hike, leaving one car at the Andante Trailhead, and the other car at the Dry Creek Vista Trailhead, where we started this two-hour, approximately two mile hike. The hike starts out easy on relatively flat ground. After about three quarters of a mile, the trail turns sharply to the left and begins a climb to the base of Thunder Mountain. You have to do a little rock scrambling, but it isn't hard, and the views are very good. You continue along the base of Thunder Mountain, and that area is very pretty with good views. The Chimney Rock trail also has good views, and that will bring you to the Thunder Mountain Trail and the Andante Trail to your car.

Take a right at Dry Creek Rd. and drive down the road about 1.5 mile and either park on the side of the road just south of the Lizard Head peak, or keep driving a 1/4 mile and take a right at the parking lot road. Head towards the main trail which starts to ascend at a marked trail. Heading towards the western-most point of the rock, you will connect with the rock piles (cairns) and see the trail headed up. Keep your wits about you and look for the easiest, marked trail. At the top, you'll veer right and make it to the top of the head. The actual lizard head formation is not for the faint of heart...but, you can still get to the "body" and have an amazing view.
