Loop recommended at Sedona MTB festival. It has a lot of climbing at the end, and we wish we had done Canyon of Fools instead of Deadmans/Aerie/etc.

Now mostly ridable particularly riding south; still tricky going north. Most of the loose deep sand has compacted with bike use and recent light rain. Section coming out of the southern most section of the wash has been rerouted to where it joins Last Frontier and is now pleasant as is the reworked trail up to Yavapai College parking.

Loose rock. Not that fun. Just good as connector.

Some water on the trail but generally dry. Love this trail every time we do it! Intermediate riders should consider walking a few small sections of this trail. Beginner riders should probably stay clear of this trail unless they are comfortable walking and not afraid of some steep xposure
