Beginner 20%, intermediate 50 % and advanced 30%, 2.3 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack The trai is very diverse in its character. It has several long climbs and descents in the north section and in the middle it rides through a large gravel wash section with optional sections on single track for those riders who don't like wash riding that Sedona is famous for. In the southern section it has less climbing and is in and out of the wash more than what you experience in the middle.

If you wanted to ride the middle of Soldier Wash in the most downhill direction from the Sinkhole you would not ride Grand Central the whole way. You would ride Jordan to Ant Hill (clockwise) to Grand Central to Hwy. 89 A.

Section of Grand Central can be used to make a number of fun loops in the Soldier Wash area.
