You will pay a fee at Dead Horse State Park in cottonwood where there are a number of trails. Lower Raptor will give you white rock views unlike the usual Sedona Area redrock. The best views will be behind you as you climb of Verde Valley. You will also see Tuzigoot National Monument from afar and an old cabin on this trail. We measured an elevation change of 450 feet.
