Beginner 95% and intermediate 5%, 3.56 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional double track that has some up and down character that makes some sections difficult to climb for beginner riders. The trail tread is mainly packed dirt which can be loose during extended dry periods which causes a safety issue for beginners riding too fast for their skill level. There is no preferred direction and the trail is a great connector for several other fun loops.

Adaptive Bike Info
aMTB 1 Rating: No obstacles exist. Wide enough. Can be ridden confidently solo.

       I call this the Bell Rock Freeway, as it's super wide and one of the busiest trails in Sedona. It is a good warm up connector for me as it's a long ascent without any technical terrain once you get past Bell Rock, turn right onto Llama and Little Horse for a lot of fun!

       Took this from Bell Rock Singletrack Bypass to the parking lot. In that direction it is a VERY fast double track trail with quite a bit of foot traffic as well. You can sort of pre-hop some of the ditches in the doubletrack and get some air. Smallest gear on this one! Highly recommend this!

       This trail was great for my 10 & 8 year old kids. It’s wide, with few technical areas but a little uphill and down hill with a few built in jumps and a great place for training future trail slayers. August if his year it’s hot but empty and fun.

       Nice, flowy, true green trail. Very good for beginners, plenty wide, with few rocks or obstacles, and those can be easily avoided. Heavy use, often by hikers, some with dogs. So be careful, and respectful as you pass. Excellent condition a few days after an early January snowstorm.
