Review: One of my top 3 trails in the world. Not for beginners but a strong intermediate could walk the super technical stuff. Start from the Red Agave apartments and take Slim Shady to HiLine. Best ridden starting at 4:00 so you get a decent amount of shade.

Review: Trail starts right out of town. Great rock climbing followed by nice technical descents. Tough for newcomer to get right approach uphill so we walked quite a few spots. Great views, very enjoyable. Especially like bombing down trail back into town.

Review: What I've come to expect from Sedona area trails. Sandy, rocky, winding through cedar forest at the base of red rock butte.
