This route is short enough to do in a sequence with Trail #24, Soldier Pass and Trail #23, Devil’s Bridge. It makes a fun day as you circle around a big loop starting at Dry Creek Road in Sedona. Coming from Cottonwood, you can head north on Forest Road 525 and run Greasy Spoon in reverse. Greasy Spoon is rugged and remote with limited scenery. People like it because of the steep, rocky hills along the pipeline. The south end of 525, near Highway 89A, has large flat areas for dispersed camping with lots of room for large campers, although it gets muddy when it rains. Road 525 is a corridor to many side roads and is a popular ATV area. Combine this trail with Trail #21.

Name changed on the sign to “Diamond Gulch OHV Trail”. Maybe 1.5 hours in an OHV. Got passed by several SxS’s going either direction. Took about 2 1/2 hours in our 4×4 frontier truck. Jeeps were driving it slower too. Pipeline portion was super fun, especially the big gulch halfway along the pipeline portion. Steep on both sides.
