The trail is 2.7 miles long and is one of the best intermediate skill level trails in Sedona. The east end starts at the Boynton Canyon parking lot which a lot of the time is full due to its popularity. The west end of the trail starts from a huge paved parking lot called Aerie.

This trail is routed mainly on dirt and some sections have chunks of rock mixed in with dirt which makes paying attention important on this ride. From the east end the trail weaves up and down through a beautiful red soil drainage that increase the fun factor of the trail.

After doing the climb to the high point from either direction the trail rips to the next intersection of your intended ride.

 Beautifuly carved trail for first 1.5 miles. Flowy and smooth for Sedona trails. Then climb a rocky ridge and descend

 The western end suuucks. Just endless rocks on the trail with no rhyme or reason, especially bad if you're trying to climb it. The eastern half is much smoother, great views as well.

 The rocky section that I see people complaining about is fun as hell and rewards the fitness to ride a few gears down from granny. Riding South to North is the fun rocky climb, then rolling until getting a nice quick descent to Cockscomb. At that point the trail completely changes attitude and becomes a roller coaster of tight natural berms and rollers. I have ridden this each time I've come to Sedona, ofyen in both directions.

 It’s got a little climb but it is gradual. Good loop with cockscomb.
