Review: one of my fav loops in Sedona. Head up Lond Canyon across deadmans/aerie/cockscomb & down Dawa. Ride the road back to the car parked at the TH at the beginning of Chuckwagon

Review: I'm pretty certain that this trail was the inspiration for the thunder mountain railroad ride at Disneyland. Fun trail, but I think the directions are missing something, like a left turn at cockscomb. There are maps at all trailheads, just plan a loop when you get there and avoid the confusion I experienced when I followed the directions given. Ride on.

Review: It's easy to get in over your head if you are learning to mountain bike and are riding Sedona. This is a relatively easy, relaxing but scenic loop the whole family.
