Mountain Biking Big Park Loop

This is a 3 mile loop through the forest beneath Courthouse Butte. Not much climbing but a lot of short ups and downs with great flow, very twisty, dry creek crossings, lots of small drops, step up's & some semi technical sections. All in all a very fun & fast romp through the woods with some amazing scenery surrounding you. This is a great warm up ride or would be fantastic trail for a beginner/intermediate rider to practice their skills. Lots of fun. Sedona Bike & Bean is located right across the highway for directions, parts or a stiff cup of java!

Getting there
Large trailhead parking lot located at the north end of the Village of Oak Creek (5 mi south of Sedona) on the east side of highway 179. This is also the south trailhead for the Bell Rock Trailway. Can be done either direction but I recommend clockwise which means riding north on the Bell Rock Trailway about .3 mile until the first singletrack to the right. This trail is probably labeled Courthouse Butte Loop as that is the corresponding hiking trail, the Courthouse trail goes left at a Y about 1 mi later and crosses into a Wilderness area (No Bikes Allowed) and is clearly marked. There are a few smaller bootleg trails ridden by the locals but just stick to the main trail and it will eventually take you right back to the parking lot.
