Sedona town loop

Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 5

Park in the Huckaby Trailhead lot on Schnebly Hill road just where the pavement ends. All singletrack. Huckaby across Oak Creek to Jim Thompson to Jordan to Teacup to Thunder Mountain to Carroll Canyon back across Oak Creek to Cathedral Loop to Little Horse to Submarine Rock to Margs Draw (poach) and back to GO. Will kick your ass.

Summary:
To Loop around Sedona and not ride through the middle of it, hook up to the west end trails to Red Rock xing.

Recommended Route:
You guys are missing out on the west end of the loop. For a man's ride take thunder mtn/teacup all the way over to chimney rock then down to dry creek road. Go north about a mile on the road, (or keep your eyes open for the single track that parallels the road to the right), to the north end of AZ cypress/girdner and then go south on girdner all the way to the old cultural park. Cross 89 to the High School and take herkinham/old post down to RR xing. Take Buddha Beach/Templeton to HT which will take you to either Bell Rock or Little horse to complete the loop on Broken arrow cw or ccw. Now you've completed "The Ring".

Summary:
Joe is right in a couple of respects, I am a shameless self promotor, but what the hell, sue me. The other item that Joe is correct about is that some prior knowledge of Sedona trails is required for this one or ride with a local so you can see how the trails link up. Or just buy my book. (sorry Joe)

Recommended Route:
Sorry Joe, do not poach Marg's Draw. I am shameless to suggest this. No, much better to ride Hwy 179 thru Sedona and be killed by some schmuck in a huge rv with 3 foot mirrors.

Summary:
Shame on you Ray for promoting the poaching of wilderness areas (Marg's Draw). However, I'm not surprised because of the even more shameless self-promotion of your dorky guide book on some of the other Flagstaff-Sedona trail posts.

Recommended Route:
counterclockwise as suggested by Cosmic Ray is best. It is better to go down Carrol Canyon or Stutz-Bearcat. Also, as mentioned by other poster knowledge of connector trails vital to keeping the ride under 4 hrs.

Summary:
I have a couple buddies who added Hot Loop/House Mountain to this in one day and it totaled more than 50. Murder, flat out murder. The good thing is you get to swim twice. Don't even try if it's over 80 degrees. You can knock this out in 4 hours if you're flying. Find the connector trails before you try this beast, or you'll be out for 5-6 hours. If you make it up Carroll canyon without more than a dab or two then you are Hans freakin' Ray. You will see Jesus at least once (not a drifter from Sedona either). If you taco a rim, or wreck bad, you're never more than a couple of miles from civilization. Good place to almost die. Adios!

Recommended Route:
Park your rig at Broken Arrow - Off to Chicken Point - Down Little Horse - Bell Rock Pathway - To Cathedral Rock Trail - Down to Buddha - Over to Verde School Rd -Down to RR Crossing - UP Carrol Canyon - Across 89A to Chimney Rock - Thunder Mtn - Teacup - Soldier Pass - Secret trails - Jimmy T - Oak Creek - UP Huckaby - Forget the Wilderness Poach, and roadie it back to Broken Arrow.

Summary:
Must agree with Ray on this ride; it's a fine way to hook into at least a small part of a majority of Sedona's best rides. Bring two water bottles and a big sandwich.

Recommended Route:
Follow Ray's directions, but skip the Marg's Draw wilderness poach and go to Circle K on 179 just south of Schnebly Hill Rd for much needed snacks instead.
