Trail Can I
Rode yesterday. Super fun and steep, but boy is it dry. The loose dirt makes some of the steep sections very difficult. 10/10 would ride again

Not as intense as I thought it would be. Some flowey downhill lead to a couple pretty big mandatory drops and an optional jump. It gets pretty steep but nothing terrifying, then you hit a fast narrow ish scree section. If not for the drops and jump it is comparable to other blues in the area.

Don’t listen to these wankers. The same people that say NOFX aren’t punk are the ones that say this trail isn’t Jedi. Lil Gnarly ain’t really there anymore. It’s a logging road and as of 4/22 lots of logging activity. Very dusty getting to the trail; your drive train will hate you, but this trail is rewarding. A couple drops and a jumper followed by steep switchbacks and then a few techy pedal strokes before going DH again into Schultz.

This trail is definitely harder than hiline or hangover in Sedona. Very loose, dry and steep. Maybe more rideable the day after a rain?

Such a well designed trail, steep rock gardens, big jumps, wavy traversing sections, nice banked turns

This trail is nuts, whoever designed this trail is a madman. Slightly water damaged, billiard ball sized loose rocks on some steep sections and deep tire ruts that will trap you in a line.

Trail Can I
This trail is very steep and very loose. There is a downed tree near to top before the first rock garden. If you have never ridden this trail before I recommend stopping before the steep parts to dial in your line. The hardest part about this trail for me was the tight turns you have to do on the steep loose surface. I recommend having maximum protective gear on whilst riding this trail. There are plenty of tire traps hidden by the loose dirt that covers this trail. Going otb on the steep sections would be a day ender.

Definitely a fun trail. Starts off with a few nice turns and narrow pinch points, then a left hander into a 4ish ft drop, then a chute that is pretty gnarly depending on how dry it is. Get some!

Downed tree about halfway down the upper flowy section, can easily jump it (maybe 8-10inches off the ground) but be ready. A tree down on the traverse section forced a reroute of one turn.

Yeah, this is now called Jedi, but only because the names were switched. Oh well...

REAL locals know this is Sheepherder, named to herd the sheep who think this trail is Jedi.

This trail was built by the same guy who built Can I and according to him, the names got switched out of confusion. So the current Jedi used to be Ken I and the current Can I used to be Jedi

Very very dry, dusty, and blown out right now. There is one downed tree a little more than halfway down. That requires you to get off to get over. Be careful on the steep bank turn as it’s just dust powder.

This trail isn't all decent if that is what you are hoping for. It has a nice flowy downhill with drops at the start(Going south to north), then the steep switchbacks, the the techy rocks you have to climb. After this it is a tame downhill to Lil Gnarly

Trail Can I
Starts out very tame, but once you start heading down in the first chute, it gets real serious real fast. Wild ride, very loose, very steep and very fast. Keeps you on your toes the entire way to Schultz, and you're guaranteed to have a grin on your face the whole time.

Be careful of hiker traps (logs and sapplings laid strategically across the trail) and objects (rocks, sharp sticks) thrown into places you'd expect the line to take you. The exit to the trail is well camouflaged so one wonders why anyone would pick a battle here.

The Forest service is Proposing connecting the upper Part of Cani (the easy part) over to the Jedi Trail and making the new connection the official Jedi Trail. There is currently a half completed social trail that the route will follow.
