“An excellent climb and descent with playful trail and some of the best views in Sedona.”— Nick Wilder
You'll end up several hundred feet above the valley with fun slickrock and expansive views of Courthouse Butte and Belle Rock. Traverse along at a level elevation through more technical trail features. This section is actually harder than the ascent - the trail is more "raw" than the Slim Shady Trail.
The descent is loads of fun and passes through several neat rock formations, ramps, and switchbacks. It's generally all rideable by intermediates. Once on the bottom floor, it's a fast cruise to the intersection with Slim Shady.
