Beginner 10%, intermediate 50% and advanced 40%, 5.29 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack that is twisty, buffed and up and down trail with some technical climbing sections you may need to walk. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt mixed with rocks and several lengthy sections of slickrock. There is no preferred direction and the trail is a great connector for several other fun loops. Pretty generic by Sedona standards.

A couple of muddy spots, but in general trail is sweet, no dust at all

 Isn't the east/west section at the far north side called Gunslinger?

 Not any more. I think when the FS adopted these trails into the system a few years ago, they merged the two trails into one and called the whole thing "Chuckwagon".

 Not sure how this trail got a Black Diamond rating. Its basically funn single track with the occasional rock garden.

 Agreed. To be sure it's not an easy trail (plenty of little challenges), but I'd call it intermediate, especially for Sedona. It's the first trail I ride when I go there - good, fun warmup for the rest of what Sedona has to offer.

 Hoo boy, it does seem that overall the Sedona trails are over-rated in terms of difficulty. Almost all are given a single-black rating. Bit of a distortion, IMO, and might turn people off. Sure, a trail like Llama might be single black if you want to clean every foot of it. But an intermediate rider will be able to ride and enjoy most of it, and more importantly won't be freaked out be any of it. Compare that to Highline, which is a seriously difficult trail, with quite a bit of exposure and risk if you want to ride it all. Seems wrong for those two trails to have the same rating.

 MtbSince84, the Hiline is double black and the Llama is blue (I'm pretty sure).
