The Army's presence in Camp Verde contributed to settlement and roads in the Verde Valley area. A road came from Jerome to a stagecoach stop several miles south of town. West of the stop, a road crossed the creek and came into our area, not yet a town. The Mund's carved a trail to the east so they could drive their cattle to summer grazing land, and later, local families worked to turn this into a passable Schnebly Hill Road. Dynamite for roads and irrigations ditches was common item in many pioneer's sheds.

J.J. Thompson's trail came down the canyon from Indian Gardens. A connection out the north end of Oak Creek Canyon wasn't completed until 1914 when the county stepped in. The new roads crossed Oak Creek 16 times and had tunnels.

Trails and dirt roads were the norm until 1938 when the state decided to pave the roads into Sedona. At this time they built Midgely Bridge. New and improved roads meant easier markets in Flagstaff and Phoenix. It was the 1950s before the cattle guard in Uptown was removed.
