This was my first time in Sedona and the views and rock formations were amazing--well worth the drive up from Phoenix. Exposure not really an issue. The slick rock descent put a big smile on my face and was the highlight of the ride (next to the views).
The double black diamond portions were very, very steep--they make a lot of other diamond runs look green. I only rode about half and walked the other half but it pushed my limits and made me a better rider.
I connected to Hiline from Slim Shady, which I connected to by riding a block from Absolute Bikes. I know this is a rating for Hiline but it is not an out-and-back or loop, it's a one-way so you have to ride other trails to get back to Slim Shady, and those other trails were not great and that affects the experience of Hiline, which is why I rate it a 4.
