How many miles is that loop?......I'll bring my KTM.......
22 miles if you climb the 3 miles back up Hermosa but it's a long back-country ride for sure. Blackhawk is a burly climb but the downhill to Hotel Draw is awesome and then it's only another 3 miles to Corral Draw which is 5 miles of 10" wide trail dropping through meadows and along a ridgeline to Hermosa. People forget there's a fairly lengthy climb on the traditional Hermosa Creek ride as well. Anyhow, all kind's of options in that area.

I did an awesome version of Blackhawk last summer with the guy who built most of Phil's World. My mtbr thread here: http://forums.mtbr.com/arizona/two-moun ... 59583.html

Gooseberry is a logical place to circle the wagons. Great camping and riding right out the door with all kinds of options and bail outs. Much less committing than Durango. Or, a fun social ride on Rainbow Rim.

Re: Sedona/Flagstaff

You can all come hang at my place outside Durango and with so many SMBs, my wife will have to see the wisdom of it all. Riding moto or pedal is all good out here.

Hey, since your coming down to pick up your Coconino tonight was the 20th anniversary of his mtb trip across the length of Baja. 1300 miles in 18 days. A totally badA$$ adventure of the extreme. Roman Dial type stuff. The slideshow was tonight at Mother Road Brewery and it was awesome to see all the old faces. https://www.facebook.com/events/460054934162349/


Sorry to go OT on this thread but since it's sort of become a default Sedona/Flagstaff biking thread I thought I'd add some context. My favorite quote.
