This is a significant loop in the Sedona Dry Creek area. I would rate the loop: 15% beginner, 78% intermediate, 6% advanced and 1% expert. The loop can be ridden in either direction, but might be most fun in a counter counter clockwise direction. Most trails in the loop are intermediate in nature, but will have some short sections an intermediate rider will walk.

If you are riding counter clockwise there might be some short sections and advanced rider may walk on the Two Fences trail going uphill. If you are riding clockwise and start at Two Fences there are several short up segments that you will need momentum to clear without dabbing.

There a numerous ways to shorten this loop, so if you need to cut the loop short you can bail at numerous intersections and ride Dry Creek Rd back to your vehicle.
