    Renting/riding Oak Creek last April

    Hey guys sorry if this is a faux pas to post this kind of stuff... I am just looking for a little beta on the Oak Creek area as far as renting a bike and riding some intermediate trails (no big hucks or death drops thanks). Will be staying at the Hilton in that area. My SO and 2 tweens will also ride some rank beginner (bell rock trail) stuff likely. Are the trails in that area easy enough to navigate without a guide and any suggestions on where to rent? I would mos def be up some guided riding if someone can recommend an outfitter. Thanks a ton in advance.

    Download the app called Trailforks, pick the AZ database, and update it.
    You can find trails, rating, and routes to fit your liking.
    When will you be there and what days are you riding?

    VOC? Absolute Bikes for sure. That side of Sedona is more technical but Big Park Loop is pretty easy. Llama has short punchy climbs but you can make a rather easy loop with Eazy Breezy and Slim Shady. There will be some HAB for an intermediate on Slim Shady if riding from s-n.

    Otherwise, the 'easiest' trails are in the Dry Creek area but there's nothing really easy in Sedona. For an expert rider, yes and might even be boring. But for a beginner to intermediate just about every trail offers challenge.
