Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

Hey Dirtanddogfur, just ran across your thread. The family and I are heading to Sedona tomorrow early a.m., spending a couple of days and then heading down and back to SoCal through lower Arizona.
We'll keep an eye out you; we're in the Baja-Beige e350.

-Mark & Mary...

JoeH: Thanks for all the great Sedona intel. Crazy windy when we were there but still super fun.

Sorry our paths didn't cross, DosMars.

Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

Sweet. Glad you had fun! It's been super busy in Sedona the last two months.

Is that sweet camp spot in your 2nd pic down off Beaverhead Flats across from Skull Mesa?

I'm taking the week off work, heading to UTAH first, hopefully for some decent MTB and then Sedona, maybe we can cross paths. :-).

SMB always more fine in many's

That is off Angel Valley Rd just before you get to the creek. There are a few spots there and we got lucky that we had the place to ourselves.

Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

Yep heading to the Zion-Moab area for some MTB, never ridden there so I'll ck the local bike shops for guidance, any recommendations on trails? Want to come along?

And then head to Sedona for the Expo.

Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

I'll just chime in because I'm a know-it-all and can't help myself

Zion is not close to Moab. It's sort of one area or the other for me. There's kind a huge lake in the way. Albeit it's shrinking.

But if your hitting the Zion area, Gooseberry, Little Creek, and Guacamole are all right there. If you come down 89, Thunder Mountain near Panguitch is a classic ride. The Brian Head stuff may be a go but it's pretty high elevation and sometimes the trails do not open until July. Not this year. VRRT near Navajo Lake is worth hitting if you drive over on hwy12. If it's really hot, hit Rainbow Rim and/or AZ trail on the North Rim of Grand Canyon. The St. George trails will be cooking by mid-May.

...I would love to tag along....but work is in the way........

Porcupine Rim.......possibly from hazard or Burro although I understand these may be still thawing out....the whole ride from the top (Burro Pass) is called "the whole enchilada".

Sovereign trail, Mag 7, etc. etc etc.

Slickrock if you have never done it.....short and easy/intermediate 2-3 hours or so...

An easy one with a great view is Gemini Bridges.

Poison Spider to the Portal trail.....looks like Gemini and these are part of the Magnificent 7......there are more great trails than you can do in one trip....

EDIT: I see that JoeH just posted, he's got the local knowledge.........Brianhead has some fun stuff (Dark Hollow, Bunker Creek, Blowhard), and Thunder Mountain is another great one as Joe mentioned.

Nick: When are you going? I'm assuming that you are heading out.........with a little bit of runway, I could make a moab trip happen......
