Trail Two Fence
West bound this would be a blue. Almost all down hill and only one wash that’s challenging. Eastbound (uphill) it isn’t overly technical but is a bit relentless. Still more of a blue. Fun alternative to going to the top of Girdner.

E-bikes are allowed on this trail according to an E-Bike map from the city of Prescott. I have submitted a change to have e-bikes listed as allowed but the info has not been updated for this trail. Here is a link to the map showing they are allowed. www.prescott-az.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/ebike.pdf

One of the best trails of the BCT. Do it either either way or both. A lot of fun and great views. A well put together set of trails.

Excellent intermediate trail with something for almost any rider. An experienced rider could push themselves on this, and a rider getting getting used to technical blue rocky trails won't be too intimidated by most of it. As everyone else says, there are expansive views from the ridge that are awe inspiring.

Fun in both directions, and a great connector and scenery trail. Blue is appropriate.

This is a real fun climb to get back to Adobe Jack for a second DH run down Javelina, Grand Central, or P Plunge. A little bit of steep stuff, some tech, and just overall a real cool climb that doesn't wear you out.

Trail Rupp
If you connect to Rupp from Girdner it is an uphill workout. Lots of loose rock, but it is fine. It begins with a very steep climb coming out of the creek bed, and then a series of other uphill climbs until you get to Cockscomb. I would not go out looking for Rupp, but it is a connection to other trails and is scenic.

Worst trail I’ve done in sedona. Not a good connector for outer limits

Super fun for upper intermediate to advanced riders in both directions. Nothing too insane but just janky in spots and flowy and fast in others. Cool trees and scenery for a quick but satisfying downhill.

If you like raw, natural trails you will enjoy this trail. It is similar to Hot Loop and the end of Turkey Creek.

Either way you go on this trail it’s straight up for a half mile or so on each end. The vista where it meet Lime Kiln is your typical breathtaking Sedona panorama however you can get the same view many other places for less work. I tried this trail because I’ve tried most of them in town and thought I should give it a go. If you mr deciding on this trail for the same reason, pick a trail you liked and re-ride it is my advice.

This is a great trail to take the family on. It’s pretty, easy, and as the other reviews have mentioned, it’s very much like a cross country track. It’s not hard and is a very pretty ride. It’s more like a green trail than a blue square intermediate for sure. A lot of fun!

XC vibes, but pretty awesome to rip. Loose rocks around but nothing too crazy. The climb at the end is challenging up but very fast and fun down with some berms and gnarlier terrain. Enjoyable ride, but don’t expect anything crazy, great scenery.

Pretty scenery but very XC type trail. I feel it’s mis labeld personally, it should be a green trail.
There’s one or two fun sections otherwise a exceptionally hard tail friendly trail.

Skywalker is a relatively flat and long-feeling mostly uphill trail(heading from Old Post to Herkenham)with a decent descent at the beginning.

Would say that this is harder than red onion actually, the blue and black ratings should be reversed

Some of the most solid biking on the BCT. Climbs are rideable but require fitness. Descents are fast but stay interesting. Excellent scenery.

Really flowy and fast trail - great throughout with some small jumps
In this area there are a whole lot of very short but fun tracks and jump lines, kind of a community network

Nice and casual climb. Some exposure. Great descent. Could be a difficult river crossing depending on rainfall.
