    Mescal was one of our favorite trails after 2 days of riding in Sedona. Great views and very flowy

    The main airport loop is a 3.5 mile relentless tech fest with huge exposure and constantly threatening cactus. Cool. Parking on the mesa can be tough and there are a lot of hikers in the immediate area, but once you get past the overlook, you'll have the trail to youreself. Even advanced technical riders will hike a good chunk of it. Clockwise is best. There's fantastic scenery along the entire route--as you circumvent the mesa, you'll get the full 360 degrees of Sedona's surrounding beauty.

    Reviewing Ram’s Head Trail:

    Fun practice loop for those not ready to take on a longer or more technical ride.

    Reviewing Ridge Trail:

    The trail segment from the top of the ridge south towards the river is probably one of the best descents in the Sedona area ... or a tough climbing challenge if you're going the other way.* Review edited 3/16/2011

    This network of trails is right on the edge of Sedona and seems to be overlooked by a lot of visiting mountain bikers. Don't leave without checking out this area.
