From Big Bug TH out on BCT (Russian Well) up over Old Sycamore Road down to first junction, rode Cooper Mtn Loop CW. We both thought CW was superior to CCW. CW has a couple steep switchbacks through interesting rocks and formations, but once you've paid, its rolling flow play with mild climbs and a stunning rock outcrop formation withing 1/4 of the highest point. Got crossed up at the stout bright green road gate (go through it, don't go past it!). The terrain is desolate with grand vistas and almost zero shade cover. It was over 85 degrees at 10 miles in and we were diving under the few trees that could provide respite from the sun. But not terrible. But in the summer, be on pedals no later than 7am!

THIS TRAIL IS SUPER FUN! Some of the longest sustained rolling flow around. Nothing in Sedona compares. Big Park Loop comes close to the flow but is a 1/3rd of the distance this place offers. You get treated to multiple miles of top gear speed. It's so fun!

The trail conditions are supreme. Zero sign of horses. Very compacted, loose in washes as you'd expect. No sand but for one dry creek crossing. Climbing the couple switchbacks CW has some fun rock junkets (blue trail all the way).

This is on BLM land so is open when the forests are closed for fire season.

      Rode CCW today. Great ride when dry. Didn't have the pot holes from horses that you hear about. No cat's claw either. Nice flow. Terry, you... view
