This ride packs in a punch of Black Diamond trails in a short amount of space. Broken Arrow and "The Hogs" is another must do ride, featuring views of Submarine Rock and Chicken Point - views that most tourists pay Jeep companies to take them to Much more fun on a mountain bike and singletrack though Wink

Start at the Broken Arrow trailhead, off of Morgan Road. Broken Arrow is a slow going technical quick ups and downs, black diamond trail. It parallels the infamous Jeep trail, so you will get glimpses of Jeeps, but at the same time you will feel mostly secluded from them.

This next time around, take Broken Arrow all the way to it's end, at the Chicken Point view. This is a world famous spot, where the Jeeps and tourists also hang out- for good reason. Next fun trail will be "Pig Tail" Trail, which is Sedona's only "jump trail". It's less than a mile long, but is a very fun one. If you're not comfortable with jumping, its easy to roll them or go around. At the bottom, turn on to Mystic Trail for a 1/2 mile climb back up to Hog Heaven. Backtrack past Pigtail and go left on Hogwash. A handful of exposed moves on Hogwash and you'll be back onto Broken Arrow to finish the ride!

Super fun. Single black with short double-black sections. Definitely would not rate it a double black when compared to Hangover. The tech moves up and down are worth the trip, with some fun “double black” shoots and exposure in-between. This isn’t a DH trail, which is why these comments have so much complaining. about the uphill sections. Lol.

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

This is a GREAT TRAIL, but it's definitely a double black.

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.

Lots of pedaling with little reward. A couple super fun, short descents but then back to more pedaling. Great views and trail building, maybe worth it once if you like climbing tech but dont like descending.

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

Fun trail, I agree with others that it feels harder than single black, and I found it more difficult than high on the hog, but slightly easier than the steep section of hiline.

Signs at the trail entrance say this is a double black. I agree. Very technical and lots of exposure.

Traveling west to east, this trail has many sections that are hike-a-bike. Once section was a steep ramp that required steps be chiseled to get up it. Don't recommend this direction.

Hog Heaven is harder than High on the Hog. There are a few moves you should look at before attempting. Some of the corners are so blind, on my first ride of it, that I had to really slow down and realize I wasn't clearing this one first try. Some intense climbs and super steep dowmhill sections that will make you pucker and laugh at the same time. Highly reccommend it because damn this trail makes you feel alive, takes your breath away, nearly falling off cliffs while laughing down massive slickrock rolls, etc. But why else do we do this? Go ride this trail.

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

Notably harder and more committing than High on the Hog. Felt a step above most the “single black” trails in town. It’s all rad tho.

Must ride trail when visiting Sedona! The obstacles are smaller than Hiline stuff but the fact that they aren't all straight line rolls may leave you feeling surprisingly challenged.

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

Not sure how this trail is not a double black diamond. Half the trailer you are walking your bike for sure. Even for a pretty advanced rider. I wouldn’t do it again. Just too much hike a bike. I wish more people would rate the things properly

Great trail. Comparable in difficulty to hi line with some challenging off camber moves.

Found hog heaven and high on the hog trails to be as difficult as hi line (walked one move on each). Fun trails, just don’t expect them to be easier than the double blacks!
