Nice, flowy, true green trail. Very good for beginners, plenty wide, with few rocks or obstacles, and those can be easily avoided. Heavy use, often by hikers, some with dogs. So be careful, and respectful as you pass. Excellent condition a few days after an early January snowstorm.

I personally loved this trail, definitely on the upper end of challenging. The rock slabs are really fun and while technical, the rock features are awesome too.

Llama is my favorite easy/intermediate trail in Sedona. Most of it is fast pedal, but there are a couple of sections that may take you by surprise. It's best ridden counterclockwise (green to red). I wrote up a blog post about the 8 best trails in Sedona (in my opinion) and Llama is one of them twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/my-eight-favorite-mountain-bike-trails-in-sedona-arizona

This trail was great for my 10 & 8 year old kids. It’s wide, with few technical areas but a little uphill and down hill with a few built in jumps and a great place for training future trail slayers. August if his year it’s hot but empty and fun.

Took this from Bell Rock Singletrack Bypass to the parking lot. In that direction it is a VERY fast double track trail with quite a bit of foot traffic as well. You can sort of pre-hop some of the ditches in the doubletrack and get some air. Smallest gear on this one! Highly recommend this!

I call this the Bell Rock Freeway, as it's super wide and one of the busiest trails in Sedona. It is a good warm up connector for me as it's a long ascent without any technical terrain once you get past Bell Rock, turn right onto Llama and Little Horse for a lot of fun!
