HT Slim Shady Llama and Little HorseTrail Sedona 2011

llamafeatured

  I actually started out to combine the Highline Trail with Llama, but while on the trail decided to pick up on the Slim Shady. I'm glad I ended up doing this loop, 'cos it is definitely a Sedona Classic, offering some of the sweetest singletrack Sedona has to offer. This trail can be quite busy, but most people start at Oak Creek, and lollipop it with Templeton. Get a nice early start, and the trail will be all yours, and the experience will be amazing.   Trail Stats & … [Read more...]

  The Munds Wagon Trail became one of my all time favorite trails last year, and I was really looking forward to riding this gem again.Last year I went UP Munds, and continued UP Schnebly, while climbing Schnebly I was already planning coming down this section, next time I was in Sedona.. Well, I was back, and I was planning on sticking to my plan I made a year previous.  However, this time the ride nearly went pear shaped because of  a tiny piece of rubber.   Trail Stats & … [Read more...]

Highline Trail Sedona 2011

The Highline Trail in Sedona, not just a mountain biking trail, but a mountain biking adventure. . Last year ( 2010 ) I did this trail for the first time, it was also the first ride I did in the USA with a guide. This year the roles had turned, and I was the guide. Luckily for me, I managed to find the trail a whole year later. The ride was just like last year fantastic, and I ended up doing it numerous times... Lucky, 'cos on the first ride I had a fast crash, supermanning at least 20ft.I … [Read more...]

The Highline Trail Sedona

. This is the first ever ride in the USA that I have not done solo. For this ride I needed a guide, 'cos there is no way I could have otherwise experienced this trail. Although once on the Highline Trail, it is easy to follow, but finding this trail as an "outsider" would be almost impossible. Luckily for me, and for anyone else visiting, Sedona has a fantastic self confessed Mtb Ambassador who is more than willing to take you "on a ride" ( in the good sense) I would really like to thank … [Read more...]

Munds Wagon Trail and Schnebly Hill Trail Sedona

Munds Trail Sedona

. I have been mountain biking around the USA now for 4 years, and also spend a lot of time on the European trails, and can say that I have done my fair share of trails. This also means that I'm not often lost for words on the trails, but every so often, out of the blue I find myself on a trail that just blows me away. It's not just the trail, it's a mixture of everything.. The trail, the scenery, the weather, how I'm feeling, how my bike bike is performing etc etc. The Munds Wagon Trail and … [Read more...]

. Doctors orders were to rest for at least 10 weeks 'cos of a cracked sternum and a couple of broken ribs I acquired on the Sovereign Trail in Moab 3 weeks ago. I have been in Sedona now for 2 weeks, and there is no way I can mooch around doing nothing for another 7 weeks... My Sternum and Ribs are doing great, so I decided to hit the Sedona trails, and just hope I don't bite the Sedona dust. The first network of trails I did was as followed : >> Big Park Loop >> onto the >> … [Read more...]
