Beginner 10%, intermediate 70 % and advanced 20%, 2.3 mile MTB trail which is a bi-directional singletrack, that is twisty with numerous up and down sections of trail that crossed a number of dry washes. The trail tread is mostly packed dirt mixed with rocks. There are also several sections of slickrock that are fun to ride and allow you to pick your own line. There is no preferred direction and the trail is a great connector for several other fun loops.

       The most fun direction to ride this trail is from the red to the green marker (on the Trailforks map) or in other words, from the Oak Creek side to Templeton.

       Took this trail as a short connector from Slim Shady to Hiline. Acceptable uphill on my route.

       Agreed with above, this section of Slim Shady is most fun from Yavapai Point parking down to Templeton. If you want a fast flowy route: start at Yavapai Point parking, take Slim Shady "North" (this blue trail from red marker to green) >> Templeton >> Hermit >> back up to Yavapai Point parking >> Slim Shady "South" (black diamond). Super fun rip!

       Definitely take people’s advice and ride this in reverse from what is suggested to start at. Much more fun going down.

       Quality trail run either direction. Worth checking out while in the area.

       Very rideable by an intermediate. There are quite a few black "b-lines", but none are mandatory. Fun and flowy, in a Sedona way.

       Dislocated my elbow on the unmarked 3ft drop to flat going north, about 0.3 miles past Kaibab. Irresponsible to not mark this feature.

       Great trail and description is pretty spot on. This was my first time on this trail and it was very trail and the rock was pretty slippery. Running down through the washes was a blast. The rock rolls were fun and the chunk in them is fantastic. Has its mellow spots and its hairy spots, so be prepared for a mix of both. Speed definitely helps on certain points of this trail.
