This loop will begin climbing Broken Arrow but will soon cut off onto Hog Wash, taking you west around the formation. Hog Wash is a technical, traversing trail with plenty of challenging moves to test out you skills on the bike. Continue to the intersection with Pigtail - a fast and flowy downhill with some small tastes of tech and some rowdy jumps. Climb back up Peccary to return to Hog Wash to reach Broken Arrow and the parking lot.

This trail is a blast! As with a lot of Sedona, momentum is your friend and as you twist and turn downhill get ready for rolls, jumps, and a drop. Combine this with all the Hog trails and in my opinion becomes epic.

Trail Pig Tail
A super fun trail with some good jumps of no consequences if one doesn’t hit them perfectly. It’s a good way to wrap up the other hog trails before heading back to the trailhead. It would also be fun to run laps using Precary for the ascent.

Trail Hogwash
The Hogs loop feels like you're always climbing and never really descending. There are a couple of super fun, very short tech downhills but then right back into washes and pedaly sections. The views are great and the trail building is excellent but if you have a limited time in Sedona, there are better trails to ride.

Trail Broken Arrow
This has been one of my favorite trails in Sedona! Can be very technical in spots. Great views make the grind 100% worth it. Definitely would ride again!

Trail Hogwash
I feel like a blend for @bensigig and @djevans. Mostly a twister with bits of up and down. Great run riding. Some tech bits are intermediate for sure, but almost all ridable, maybe on second try. But the exposure is attention getting throughout, and gripping in spots. And some of those tricky spots have even more exposure than average, and are off camber for extra spice. So those sections need to be committed to, or plan to walk (three or four sections of 20 feet?).

Trail Peccary
Great descending trail. Comparing Peccary to Mystic to Hogwash vs Hogwash, I found it more fun to bomb this down from Hogwash and come up Mystic than to do the west half of Hogwash.

Trail Hogwash
A note to the intermediate riders -- I took my dad (an intermediate rider) on this trail today based off bensgig's comment above. While maybe not as technically difficult as Hog Heaven, this trail is not what I would consider to be intermediate-friendly. There is quite a bit of exposure along narrow, up and down trail that I think would make most intermediate riders fairly uncomfortable. You aren't going to die if you fall, but the rider's left gives way to 10 - 25 ft embankments/slick rock drops where a fall could result in a potentially serious injury. We also found there to be more than "a few" technical spots that would give an intermediate rider trouble. Would recommend Slim Shady, Templeton, & Easy Breezy to those looking for more intermediate-friendly black diamond trails.

With that said, I think most advanced riders would enjoy this trail. Personally, I would rate this as a fairly solid black diamond and Hog Heaven a double black diamond.

Trail Broken Arrow
It is a slow Tech up and down for most of the time. A little bit of a grind but as you get to the other trails that it connects to it is worth it. Are usually ride it every time I come here. People go to encounter tons of hikers going both directions. I would say the trail is a little bit of intermediate more with a tiny bit of advanced points

This trail was good. Totally rideable in both directions for an intermediate rider. I don’t know why it says advanced. Because I don’t think it was that bad but there were a few spots that I would say some people would have trouble with. But definitely a fun little trail I would do again
