While this route is typically done as a timed event, it is self-supported, route is not marked and riders should be prepared for a backcountry type of experience.

The route has changed slightly for 2016. Typically ridden in a CW direction from the Bike n Bean in Oak Creek. This route combines many of Sedona's top mountain bike trails. Riders will find great views, fun fast sections, hard technical challenges, exposure, some hike-a-bike and a water crossing.

This is probably my favorite trail in Sedona, AZ. Unfortunately my gimbal broke after this ride, but I'm glad I was able to get Hiline filmed in...
