Mountain Biking Cockscomb Trail

****   Add a review
#259 of 422 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#8260 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.

Stay on Dry Creek Road about 3 miles to the end and a stop sign. Turn left on Boynton Pass Road and proceed about 1 1/2 miles to a stop sign. Turn left, continuing on Boynton Pass Road. Drive approximately 2.5 miles and turn left on Aerie Road, which is about 0.5 mile past the Doe Mountain/Bear Mountain parking area on the left side of Boynton Pass Road. Follow Aerie Road and take the right fork to the trail parking area.

    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.
