An agave near it's final bloom in Margs Draw.


Marg's Draw area is a wonderfully wild area located southeast of a border formed by highway 179 along the west and Schnebley Hill Road along the north. This area contains a vast number of towers and spires with some really good climbing on them. This is a great place to visit, whatever the reason!!

Getting There 

If you drive south on 179 from the "Y" in Sedona, then turn east on the road just south of the small Circle K, you can park at the Marg's Draw Trailhead. Follow signs to the trail, then access formations as described individually.
