 Great loop for the strong beginner/intermediate rider. The last blast up the Girdner hill may require some walking, but overall a great introduction to the different types of terrain in Sedona.

 Nice conditions!! Fast, fun, little tech here and there. Great for beginner intermediates or a warm up for more advanced riders.

Mostly downhill from the Dry Creek trail head (north end). Im surprised with the low rating. It was fast and fun. Some technical climbing and baby head fields towards the South trail head at 89a. Id give it a solid 4 if I could figure out how to rate it.
