While Edge of the World is the most well-known camping spot in this area, the campsites at the end of Little Round Mountain Trail offer stunning views of the red rocks overlooking the Sedona area. There are limited campsites at the southern end of this trail. Two can accommodate 4-5 vehicles, and a third campsite is smaller, suitable for 1-2 vehicles.

The northern end of the trail, closest to East Pocket Road, is a designated dispersed camping corridor on both sides of the trail, authorized by the Forest Service. This means limited cross-country motor vehicle use is allowed within 300 feet of the trail's edge, specifically for dispersed camping. There are several larger sites at this end, each capable of accommodating 3-4 vehicles and up to 7-8 vehicles.

The trail from beginning to end is rated easy, but it can get closer to the moderate level due to a few hill climbs, drainage crossings, and potential mud. While high clearance and 4WD are not required in dry weather, they would certainly be advantageous.

Several side trail connections are worth exploring. Check out Rattlesnake Mesa and South Pocket Lookout for more adventure.
