High Point

This is a good short loop that includes the descent down Slim Shady which is one of the best descents in Sedona. There are many possible ways to get to Slim Shady and this is really the key trail on this ride. You can do this as a stand alone shorter ride or you can tack it on to another loop if you want to put in the extra miles. The ride is listed as a black diamond on Trailforks, but we think it is an easy black loop or a challenging blue loop.
