The whole trail is 3.45 miles long and is rated as intermediate for the most part. There are several steep sections an intermediate rider will walk, but for the most part this trail offers a great loop potential when hooked up with the Aerie trail.

Much of the trail was once an old jeep road so several sections are wider than a normal Sedona singletack. Over the years the FS has been trying to narrow the trail by adding rocks and dead-fall on the edges of the trail.

There is one section of the Cockscomb trail that intersects the Dawa trail. This intersection is somewhat confusing due to poorly laid out signage. Please note that the Dawa trail is shaped like an L so make sure you are on the correct track when you exit the common trail area.
