Disclaimer - some people may view this as an expert level ride, but going by "Sedona standards" this is a intermediate level ride. This ride includes paved roads which can by busy with cars, please use caution.

This ride is being offered as a shuttle from Over The Edge bike shop in Sedona. This ride is a point to point, cross country intermediate level ride and a great route to get a higher mileage ride in Sedona. Terrain is varied, with loose rocky ups and downs, slickrock with minimal exposure, twisty singletrack, some creek beds (most of the year its dry), and some extended climbs (for Sedona standards). These trails were built by mountain bikers and have some of the best flow in Sedona!
