Scorpion is a two way trail so watch for other trail users.

The Scorpion/Pyramid descent is one of the best descents in Sedona. An easier variation of this ride is to simply descend all the way down Scorpion instead of turning right onto Pyramid. We have built this route as a quick lap, but you can easily make this descent a part of an epic. Expect an incredible trail full of quick turns, rock slabs and constant action. This trail is actually quite challenging especially when ridden at speed. There are also a series of short climbs so by not means is this trail all downhill. This trail could also be shuttled as there is easy road access off Red Rock Loop Road.

Trailforks wasn’t letting us connect this this route… to get back to your starting point simply hang a left onto Red Rock Loop Road and climb back up to your starting point. A variation would be to climb up Old Post and Herkenham trails back up to your starting point.
