SEDONA MOUNTAIN BIKING

Pros Cons
Easy to get to from Phoenix Very hot for summer riding
Shoulder season mecca Very touristy, think pink jeep tours. Just pass them while you bike and wave
Free camping Lots of noisy ATVs
Lots of trails for the advanced to the expert rider to test out their skills

Sedona is considered by many one of the most beautiful places in America to visit. Geographically, Sedona rests in a transition zone between the Colorado Plateau and Upper Sonoran Desert. This sacred and powerful place is home to several spiritual energy vortexes, as well as an extensive trail system with unparalleled options for mountain biking and hiking.  Sedona offers astounding red rock vistas and is a perfect destination for the off-season months when the rest of the country’s trails are covered in snow.

SEDONA IS BEST KNOWN FOR

  • Off-season riding. When it’s too cold in the rest of the country, head down to Sedona to mountain bike.  Sedona is probably the best known mountain bike town in Arizona… for good reason.
  • It’s spiritual energy and vortexes!

WHERE TO RENT BIKES IN SEDONA

  • Rent a mountain bike online at Sedona Bike and Bean, and grab a latte from them pre-ride.
  • Thunder Mountain Sedona also carries the hottest line up of mountain bikes from several amazing brands.

SEDONA GUIDED MOUNTAIN BIKE TOURS & LESSONS

Looking for a local to guide you to the best Sedona mountain bike trails, or help you brush up on your mtb skills?

  • Sedona Mountain Bike Academy offers beginner through advanced mountain bike clinics and lessons!
  • Hermosa Tours offers personalized, custom guided bike tours throughout the red rock trails of Sedona.

WHERE TO CAMP FOR FREE IN SEDONA

  • There are several options for free camping, we camped off the main drag 525 which was slightly busy, but gave us quick access to town and getting to trails
  • Road 525 (or Loy Butte Rd) can be busy, but make sure you stick to one of the established parking/camping spots and don’t just forge your own spot in the desert.
  • Please make sure to leave no trace and pack everything out (that includes your poo!).  These materials don’t break down in the dry desert, so burying human waste is a no-no here.
