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.

Rode from Llama to Chicken Pt and back down to the bottom. Uphill was not bad at all, as long as you can roll up the occasional 1-2 ft high step (other than the mega-step/chute at the east end... you'll know it when you see it!), the rest of the gardens had pretty obvious lines to follow; a lot of "blue" trails have gnarlier/more exhausting climbs. Definitely lots of hikers along the way to say hi to, views at the top are worth the climb. And of course the ride down was a blast!

Fun wide singletrack trail with a few very short (10-30 yard) hike a bike sections for me (intermediate/advanced rider). Lots of hikers (expected on nearly all Sedona area trails).

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.

One of the best downhills I rode in Sedona, lots of fun rock gardens with some faster sections mixed in. One very steep chute near the top that felt like more than single black to spice it up.

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?).

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.

Trail Llama
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

Little Horse is a great descent from Broken Arrow and Chicken Point if you don't want to do the Hogs (which are super fun as well). It's pretty mellow with one semi-technical chute. Connect it into Llama for a pedaly end to the ride.

Kind of a dud. Not technical but not really flowy (too much gravel.) Convenient as a connector but I’d almost rather take the road.

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.

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.

This is the fun part of the trail. After you have done broken arrow. Now you are descending. The way they show it is not the way to do it. Do it the opposite and you will be going downhill which will be fun. Flowy with little text features that are awesome. Connect it to llama. And keep going

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

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!
