Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is definitely not for beginners. It has a lot of technical climbs and descents- drop offs and stairs, etc. A lot of narrow singletrack along cliffs. This trail takes you to the top of some awesome slick rock with some great views. You can either return the way you came or take one of the connecting trails.

Review: This is a solid trail with some doubletrack, singletrack, and ledgy rock... but despite being the namesake in this trail system, it most definitely isn't the best trail in this group. Check out Hog Heaven and High on the Hog for way more epic riding!

Review: Rode this three years ago as part of a shuttle from the top of Munds Wagon, over to Broken Arrow and down Bell Rock. This was one of my first rides ever. Had a blast. For a newbie at the time, I definitely bailed a few time ... ... didn't do the five foot drops =) and didn't clear some of the tech on the climbs. But it was a ton of fun. I'd like to go back and do it again sometime and see how I fair.

Review: Beautiful landscape. Lot of work to get to the top, but it's an awesome view. Swing down to submarine rock and enjoy the smooth rocks. Watch out for the Pink Jeep tours and the cactus.

Review: Fun trail with good flow and variety. Submarine rock and Chicken Point slickrock fun to mess around on. Loop it with Little Horse, Pig's tail and more techy non-system stuff up on the Hogs (ask LBS for secrets!)

Review: This is a great trail with some good technical sections and classic desert riding. Climb to Chicken Point has some technical sections and hike-a bike. Definitely worth the effort when you get to Chicken point and take in the views.

Review: Sedona is beautiful. This is a climb on a little sand and lots of red sandstone. Expect to see hikers, 4x4 tours and great scenery. One of the busiest trails in AZ.

Review: Great trail, it's nice to link it up with Llama- quite technical and some fun slickrock sections. Rode out on the Slim Shady Trail from the Bike and Bean (great shop, very helpful, let us wash our bikes out back) over to Little Horse, Broken Arrow then Llama. All of the combinations of these are fun and technical.

Review: Very fun, I usually start out from bell rock area ride over to the llama trail area then to broken arrow via chicken point. Last time I started out on the other side of the highway and rode over to budda beach then over to chicken point. Great single track, well groomed. Beware of hikers they are all over but tend to be very friendly. There are tons of tourists all over by the bell rock area but if you start out across the highway from the bike and bean you will avoid all the tourists. If you have any questions about the trail the guys at bike and bean know it all.

Review: The few times I made it to Sedona this was the trail I wanted to ride first. A very fun and challen-ging trail with the option to add on extra miles with the copius amount of trails in the area. A Sedona classic.

Review: Some slickrock, some singletrack, few drops in there, whole bunch of stuff to have a lot of fun on. Real good trail, and absolutely beautiful. I don't think it's as super technical as others make it out to be, but I'd say it's intermediate-advanced in terms of technicality. Some grunt climbs that make you sweat. Rode this and connected it down to Llama trail, tons of fun.
