Here is what I call the Sedona West EPIC loop. It is not super hard for someone with true intermediate bike skills and decent lungs. Amazing scenery and a bit of tech thrown in for excitement. You can definitely find some new lines around Mescal to make it harder/easier if you like.

Have taken many guests on this loop with great reviews.
