This is a self-supported route. Come prepared to ride on backcountry terrain.

The crown jewel of the Arizona Endurance Series, AES, is the Coconino 250. This route is a 4 day bikepacking stage race with designated camping locations where the clock stops. The route is done in a CW direction starting in Flagstaff and riding through Sedona, up Mingus Mtn. down to the Verde River, then up to Williams before returning to Flagstaff.

This route has it all. Incredible singletrack along the Arizona Trail, red rock riding in Sedona, punishing climbs and hike-a-bike on Mingus, miles of jeep/forest roads and views galore!!

Some slight muddy sections due to recent storms. Remember to steer clear of the mud and preserve the trail please. Dry sections are fine to ride.
