Sedona, AZ mountain bike trip

I (Gary) have been approached by one or two people to try to gauge interest in a trip to Sedona, AZ for some great mountain biking!

I can't go, but I know someone going the week of April 12 and planning to bike Saturday, April 12 through Wednesday, April 16 (and staying later).

There is some great mountain biking in the area and also lots of other things to do, so sign up if you think you want to go.

    So what did you guys think of the Hiline trail?

      I had to keep stopping to take pictures when I was there. A few times I felt my eyes start to wander looking at the scenery, and that's a trail that requires paying attention.

      I almost feel off with one foot clipped in. Not where I would have died, but hurt pretty bad. Still worth it!!

    Jim-
    HiLine was awesome! Some exposure but not as bad as I thought. We both enjoyed being at the top of Cathedral Rock. The switchback down to Slim Shady was intense! Mescal was another super fun, beautiful trail. Who am I kidding?? The whole place was beautiful and great trails!!!

      Perhaps we can chat at Blue on Saturday? Sedona was awesome, thanks again for your insight and advice. Sorry, tho, no shirt as promised on mtbnj....didn't even get one myself so now I HAVE to go back!

      No worries, I'm sure I'll be going back in the near future as well. My car is in the shop, but I should get it back today, in which case I'll be at Blue tomorrow.

    It looks like I might be in Denver 4/9-4/11. If that's the case, I'll either hop a flight down to Arizona or ski /snowboard somewhere in Colorado. Normally I would just bike somewhere in the Denver/Golden area, but it sounds like most of the good stuff will still be snow covered. Are you guys flying to Sedona or Phoenix? What days are you arriving and departing? I'll know in a few days if I'm going to Denver or not.

      Well, I got the ok for Denver, but I won't have time to fly down to Sedona after. Next time.

    Hey guys and girls! I know this is becoming more last minute planning, but I think this would be a great trip to break away from the cobwebs of this relentless winter! A few of us are planning to go, I got my flight and bike rental booked and looking forward to some great riding in the desert with some great people - please join us so we can make this an epic tour!!

    What are the trails like? Beginner, Intermediate, rocky? I might consider it.

    February 22, 2014

    • JimN

      It varies from flat beginner trails to crazy exposure technical trails that I wouldn't ride. Most of what I rode I would describe as intermediate with some technical sections, but I also rode some trails on the crazier side.

      I go there every year and hit about every trail out there Jim is right on it has every level. Im actually planning a trip right now but prob 1 week after this. So if anyone is still there for longer i hope its posted cause I might be solo this time

    April is still ski season. I have zero interesting in going anywhere without snow that time of year.

    February 20, 2014

    • JimN

      I just got back from Killington, and skiing and snowboarding are fun, but I'd choose a mountain biking trip any day of the week. I'm sure I'll eventually ski out west though.

    Ahhhh, I'm going to a wedding that very day!!!, and yes I asked them if it could be postponed for only one week, seriously!! NaFC!! :(

    February 21, 2014

    • JimN

      Wedding is on Saturday? So fly out Sunday morning and ride Sunday afternoon through Wednesday.

    I might be interested. I was there last year and it is really awesome. I can lead if I go, but I won't know for a few weeks.
