    Sedona Girdner Trail Reroute Updates

    So we have been getting updates on the Girdner trail reroutes by rockman and based on what he told me I went out today to check out his work. When I asked him if the section he worked was across Timís wash from the first reroute section he was not sure. It seemed logical thatís where the second reroute section should start.


    When I rode the first reroute section it was showing lots of use and was getting packed in nicely. It rode much better than when I rode it last week. Thank god the Red Rock Ranger District allows mountain bikers to ride newly constructed trails as soon as they are constructed.


    So today I check out the second reroute. section and I was happy to see some mountain bike tracks on it. As I thought the second section starts across Timís Wash and follows a steep contour above of the Dry Creek Wash below.


    The new route is definitely not something the early sedona trail builders would have ever picked. It will cost a lot to build and it will need continuous maintenance due to heavy equestrian traffic. I told the FS previously that they should leave the old Girdner for the equestrians but they looked at me cross eyed when I suggested that.

    Combro thanks for the positive post. I really don't deserve any brocredit. It was those passionate brobuilders that came up with the outstanding concepts and built them into bropieces. I only have given the brobuilders credit for their unselfish efforts. I have only created detailed maps for the riding public and S&R to rescue lost hikers. Those maps along with the new concepts and massive amounts of positive MTBR infoposts were instrumental in making Sedona a World Class mountain bike destination for brominded mountain bikers.

    This is great news. I rode the old Girdner about 15 years ago and have never been back. The day felt like a waste and there wasn't anything fun about that trail at all. This new bench cut looks rad.

    Looks awesome. This trail is my next planned destination. Have a couple of friends who are also willing to go. My usual (best ridden) trail is Inner Basin (and yes, it's a no go now).

    The total Girdner reroute will be 4.3 miles long. So far they have approximately .75 miles completed with secret entrances and exits. Hopefully it will be completed when you get here.
