History of Munds Wagon Trail
The history of the Munds Wagon trail is that it was originally used by the indigenous people to trade their products such as corn and beans with neighboring tribes in the area. Then in 1896 this trail was further developed by a rancher named Jim Munds. With cattle roaming on the land near Sedona he was confronted with the challenge of creating a trail for drive training his cattle to Flagstaff. Jim Munds began the construction of a wagon road from a trail over the steep terrain to bring the cattle to market. When the road up Oak Creek Canyon was complete the Munds Wagon Rd. was further developed as the primary route from Sedona to Flagstaff. The reasoning the trail was called Cow Pie, was because it basically resembled a stack of manure. Today while you experience the beauty of this trail you will see original retaining walls along the path from Jim Munds project.
