Mountain Biking Cockscomb Trail

****   Add a review
#103 of 401 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#3,104 in the world

As with most trails in Sedona, a recreation pass is required to park your car at the trailhead. There is a kiosk at a nearby parking area. From the Cockscomb trailhead, ride to the left to do the loop counter-clockwise. Lots of fun, fast singletrack, with some slickrock and just a few technical rocky sections. A great trail for MTB beginners.

    The Aerie side of this loop is narrow, twisty and fun; much of the Cockscomb side is wide and less interesting. There are a variety of ways to close this loop--get a map and have some fun exploring.

    Easy/intermediate. Did Aerie to Cockscomb to Dawa. Rode the pavement for a mile to Long Canyon and up Deadmans Pass. 11 mile loop. 900 vertical but no serious climbing. Nice views, fast and flowy and mostly smooth. Had fun.
