Hiline is an absolute must do ride when you visit Sedona. It is an advanced trail and it has some very advanced double black sections in a couple of spots. If you are a determined intermediate rider you need to be prepared to walk a number of sections if you decide to do this ride. Hiline starts with a challenging and technical climb followed by some awesome views of the Verde Valley region, the descent is really fun and offers some great challenges.
Baldwin is a fast trail with flow and few bigger moves (if you are seeking them out). After riding Baldwin the trail breifly parallels Oak Creek if you are in the mood for a mid ride swim! Templeton has a short steep hike a bike climb and then is just super scenic and fun. An easyish climb up Hermit takes you back to your starting point. This Templeton trail passes one of the famous Voretex areas of Sedona called Cathedral Rock (you might see people hiking up to see it). The start/finish area also overlooks the Bell Rock Vortex. It is pretty cool to see trees that have grown in a tight spiral in these areas... it is worth checking them out and taking a moment to sit and reflect.
