This is the perfect time of year to take a vacation in Sedona, Arizona and treat yourself to some outdoor sedona activities like mountain biking. Not only does Sedona offer many trails but it also offers great weather and breathtaking scenery. There are trails in Sedona for all skill levels and if you do not want to go the trails alone you can take a Sedona guided tour with one of the Sedona’s specialty tour companies.
If you are a novice like me I would suggest an easy start. My favorite start to a day of mountain biking is Bell Rock Pathway. The pathway links the Village of Oak Creek and Sedona. The trail is only about 7 miles long, round trip, provides great scenery and the pathway has a wide surface for an easy smooth ride, but there are some steep hills too, making you put in some effort. You can reach Bell Rock Pathway from the junction of Routes 89A and 179 in Sedona by taking 179 south 3.6 miles to a paved turnout and trailhead parking on the left (east) at milepost 309.8, .2 miles south of the entrance to the United Methodist Church for the northern trailhead.
