    Passing through Sedona...ride advice.

    I've been studying maps at MTB project. Here is the plan I came up with to combine "twin buttes loop" and cathedral rock loop rides

    Starting at what is shown as the start finish for twin buttes loop (northeast corner of loop) start loop as shown clockwise and crossing 179 to pick up trail going south to Hi Line trail. Take Hi Line instead of slim shady and complete loop back to crossing at 179 then finish twin buttes loop.

    Sound good? Make Sense? Advice?

    big both of those loops are excellent choices for an advanced rider. Have fun an let us know whether you enjoyed those challenging trails.

    Connecting HiLine and the Broken Arrow stuff is imho the best Sedona combo possible and for me a very big day.

    The Hogs and depending on how you do the Double H (Hogs and HiLine) a couple of other trails like Little Horse, Peccary, and Twin Buttes. Or, Llama if your riding from VOC.

    what time of day and year? Sedona is hot now. You can probably get ride in early in the AM, but mid day or afternoon will be very warm.

    Damn, yeah, be careful. It easily feels 10 degrees hotter than advertised with the rock reflecting. It's that time of year.

    Did this ride today as described above. Pretty awesome...not as technically challenging as I expected but pretty darn fun and some good challenging spots. Finished on pigtail, peccery, hog wash. Fun!

    I'm going to be there the end of the week and through the following week, I think I'm going to follow this same loop.

    If you don't mind me asking; what time did you start the ride, how long did it take, and how were the temps? I'm planning to be riding by 7 - 8 and getting in 1 - 2 hrs each day if possible.

    Hit broken arrow trail at 6:15 am and temps were fine. 5 plus hours with lots of playing around on slick rock...so not sure what it would be like if you just ripped through it.

    Thanks for info. I'll probably break that ride up into two different days. Do one side of 179 and add slim shady one day and do the other side of 179 another day.
