Mountain Biking Herkenham Trail

****   Add a review
#262 of 422 mountain bike trails in Arizona
#8,303 in the world

This singletrack flows down through a canyon underneath a small power line. It is full of tight corners, small drops, loose gravel here and there, rocks, sand, cactus, great views- all the ingredients of that classic Sedona riding. Although its not real steep it is a steady grade and can be a little challenging of a climb coming back up. Normally I wouldn't write up a description for a trail so short, however this trail grants you access to several other trails in the valleys and ridges within this area of Sedona. This 1 mile trail ends at the Old Post tr, turning left will take you to the Carroll Canyon tr & the Ridge tr which make for several different options. There are also a few unnamed, social trails running through the area, most of the major intersections are signed, just a lot of great riding. Turning right at the Old Post tr will take you to the Red Rock Crossing rd. Following this too the river (Oak Creek) and crossing it will have you at the base of the Baldwin Loop tr and other points beyond.
You may have guessed by now a trail map (readily available in town) is very handy for riding in the Sedona area, there seems to be new trails here all the time.

    This is a fun way to get into (and out of) the Airport Mesa network of trails.

    There is some interesting and challenging terrain between Hwy 89A and Oak Creek south of uptown Sedona ... there are climbs, canyons, ridge tops, loose rocks and fast rolling trails all packed into a few miles.
