Mt. or Road Biking in Sedona


mt biking in sedona
Bike Riding (either road or mountain) in Sedona is under-rated--in fact, it is World Class: there is beauty, fun trails, dramatic and ever-changing terrain, and above all-access to the Red Rock Canyons of Sedona.

The Southwest Inn at Sedona lies at the Western Gateway to Sedona, and many of the Road and Mt Bike trails are accessable from our parking lot.  The best time of year for Bike Riding in Sedona would be the late fall through the early spring, especially during the months of November, December, January and February. 

Five great reasons why winter bike riding in Sedona is the best:

  1. Crisp nights
  2. Warm days
  3. No bugs
  4. No people
  5. And, winter rates

From the parking lot of the Southwest Inn at Sedona, you will have access to some of my favorite trails, including:mt biking thunder mt

  • Thunder Mtn., which can take you all the way around Sedona!!
  • Jeep Trail out to Devils Bridge, and further out to Secret Canyon.
  • Wagon Wheel Trail to Mescal to Aerie to Cockscomb.
  • Deadmans Pass and Long Canyon.
  • Cypress Trail, Dawa Trail, and Girdner Trail.
  • and, via Red Rock Crossing, you have access to all of South Sedona,

or, if you are on your road bike:

  • Out Thunder Mtn-beneath the front range, over to Snoopy Rock, and out towards Bell Rock.
  • Page Springs-ride through the rolling hills of the Northern Arizona Wine Country.
  • Ride up to the historic mining town of Jerome, European switchbacks!
  • Out over the Sedona Marathon course towards the Boynton Canyon Vortex.
  • Up through 89A towards the Navajo Overlook-rated as North America's most scenic highway.

You could ride for days, and never cross your previous path.  What's more, during the peek Mt Biking months of November, December, January, and February, you will enjoy our winter rates.  And, when you are done riding, you can enjoy our outdoor jacuzzi, which looks up at Thunder Mt., and Coffee Pot Rock. coffee pot rock

A great road for riding is the 179 from the 89a down to the Village of Oak Creek. Since they redid the road there is now a bike lane and the views of the red rocks and the Chapel of the Holy Cross are magnificent. Sedona green
