Beginner 20%, intermediate 40%, advanced 20% and expert 20%, 2.62 mile very technical MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack, that is up and down with about 400 yards of technical exposed and really steep sections a lesser skilled rider will have to walk. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt mixed with some rocks. There are also sections of slickrock that is fun to ride by all levels of riders. The preferred direction is southeast to northwest and the trail is a great connector for several other fun loops.

 Amazing trail, lots of exposure on the climb up, but easily walkable. The descent is totally worth it even if you walk the really steep/techy part. One of the best trails I’ve ever ridden.

 The summary says that this is a bi-directional trail, but it is NOT. You must catch the trail from Slim Shady and climb up to the Hiline where it's one way all the way to the Baldwin connector.

 Lots of tech uphill on exposed thin single track with a well deserved single track section 1 dh. Section 2dh has rock drops, steeps, sandy rock sections with great corners. Definitely dbl black. Amazing!

 Definitely not a double black. Probably the best trail in Sedona. If you're on the fence, try it out.

 Gnarly climb on the ridge for good first third. Some spots are 12inch from the edge, so if you don't like heights then don't take it. Techy climb indeed. The downhill is definitely worth the climb/walk up, though. Views are amazing!

 Over the edge recommended this trail to start out with and we very pleased! After riding for a week straight in Sedona I’d say that this trail is the most fun. Perhaps a double black in spots but I thought it had great flow and the steeps added some great thrill. Totally rideable, so much traction on the rocks and dirt here.

 Beautiful trail. Like I've seen mentioned, the blazes on the downhill are guides, not necessarily the best line. Tough part of the climb isn't long. Middle traverse really is beautiful. Not much true exposure; just keep your eyes on the trail! Down hill portion has a handful of techy spots that explain the double diamond rating. A little dusty but not bad. I rode some of those and got to save some for next time : )

 like everyone says. Start at Slim Shady. One of the most gratifying climbs for being a challenge but every section is rideable... you just gotta focus. From the climb's summit until dropping in to the final descent the trail is just fun and beautiful. For 99% of riders I think they'd talk about how much of the descent they could ride, not how fast or anything. Piecing together what you're comfortable riding and adding a bit more each time you ride this trail is probably a common strategy... and that day you're totally feel it you might get all but one section that I need to see someone ride to figure out the line. one of my top ten favorite trails anywhere!
