High Point

Advanced riders will love testing their technical skill on this ride. Broken Arrow is a sustained and long climb with several features with small rests in between. Expect armored uphills, technical switch backs, and some punchy, bigger moves as you gain the top at Chicken Point. Enjoy the views here before turning around and heading back down Broken Arrow to the High on the Hog intersection. Take High on the Hog around the formation to the north. Be prepared for exposed traversing followed by a committal move down slick rock. Continue to Twin Buttes for another fast and rowdy descent to join back up with Broken Arrow and continue to the parking lot.

This trail is really fun. Mostly downhill with one double black rock roll.

Cool rock features and great views but this whole area is very pedaly, even for Sedona. There are much more fun descents in the area.

One very difficult move in the downhill direction that's clearly double black, otherwise easier than hog heaven. Beautiful views and definitely worth riding.

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!

This is a fun trail. Tons of slick rock, views, and only a couple of sketch moments. The real gnarly stuff is on Hog Heaven.

The Hog Trails are a must-ride for any intermediate-expert rider in Sedona. Some say they're as difficult as Hiline, but I disagree. There's nothing as steep or loose. The technical parts are mostly tricky narrow sections of the trail with exposure to the side. If you want to make it more challenging there are plenty of alt-lines to the side to play around on. I wrote up a blog post about the 8 best trails in Sedona (in my opinion) and the Hog Trails are one of them twowheeledwanderer.com/posts/my-eight-favorite-mountain-bike-trails-in-sedona-arizona

Sedona has a handful of must ride trails and this is one of them. First on the list for every visit.

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
