The thrill is twofold. First off, you'll get to experience, up close, some of Arizona's most spectacular scenery. We're talking pink and red rocks forming needles and plateaus, rivers winding through desert valleys and big skies full of eagles, condors and vultures.
The other reason that mountain bikers flock to the Sedona region is that the trails themselves are just completely awesome. Pedal along snaking paths that wind down to quiet creeks and glide along ridges with expansive panoramas of the valley below.
Whether you're renting a bike or bringing your own, make sure you pack enough water for the hot Arizona days. The variety of trails means that there are cycling opportunities for every ability, but anyone can be caught out by the sun.
Ready? Pick up your Red Rock Pass and head out on one of these trails for guaranteed thrills and spills.
